February 1st, Mayor Thomas Micozzie has officially sworn in our new Department Fire Chief, Gary McAfee. Chief McAfee has been the acting Chief since long time Department Chief Edward Cubler retired over a year ago. Chief McAfee was promoted up from the ranks of Deputy Chief in which he spent over 15 years after transferring over from the police department. Along with serving the police force, Chief McAfee was also a volunteer firefighter for decades in Upper Darby Township before becoming a Deputy Chief. On behalf of all the members of Upper Darby Professional Firefighters, Local 2493, we congratulate you Chief. We look forward to continuing our great relationship with you.
Also, thank you to the following for photos; Councilwoman Lisa O'Rangers Faraglia, the Upper Darby Police, and Mike McKenzie.
