Marple Newtown Patch wants you to get to know your first responders. They do dangerous work and Patch would like to recognize them. Meet this first responder who is a firefighter with the Broomall Fire Co.
Name: Scott Wiercinski
Rank/Title: Junior Firefighter
How long have you been with the Broomall Fire Co.?
About a year and six months.
What do you like about your job?
I like helping the community and the family aspect that we have here. But helping the community is the main part.
What do you dislike about your job?
The fact that sometimes people can’t work together and bicker about stuff that can be done quickly and what needs to be done.
What inspired you to become a firefighter?
It’s kind of in my blood. My grandfather was a former fire chief. My father is still a member here. It’s kind of always been something I always wanted to do.
What do you like about the Marple Newtown area?
I like that it still has that 'small town' feel but we’re still close to the city so it’s not too far to go out and do stuff.
What do you want the general public to know about the Broomall Fire Co.?
We’re here to help. We’re not here to cause any trouble or problems for anyone. We’re just here to help.
