Chief’s Commendation

Members were presented a Chief’s commendation by the township Fire Dept. office for the rescue of a worker at the duck pond at Haverford College.

On 6/30/17 a worker became stuck in the mud in the middle of the pond. Members used the aerial ladder to gain access to the male victim and pull him from the mud. It was a true team effort by all involved to rescue the male subject!
