Lewes DE Fire Department Line of Duty Death

Monday, July 11, 2016    Our Thoughts and Prayers go out to the Lewes DE Fire Department and the Family of Firefighter Tim McClanahan who died during a training exercise yesterday




Saturday, July 9, 2016   Thank you!On behalf of the Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial Committee, we want to thank each of the members of the Emergency Services and those who are not, who attended either the Viewing or Funeral Services for Deputy Fire Chief 20-9a & Delaware County Fire/EMS Dispatcher #36 on Wednesday June 29th or Thursday June 30th 2016 to show the Morgan Family and the Members of the Garrettford Drexel Hill Fire Company that they are not alone in Mike Morgan 's passing.

A heartfelt Thank You also goes out to each of the organizations involved in the preparation, hard work and resources that you mustered together so that the Morgan Family and the members of the Garrettford Drexel Hill Fire Company could honor and pay tribute to their beloved son, brother, uncle, family member, Deputy Chief and friend!

It has been said a thousand times already, Mike was that good guy you wanted to be with, he made everyone laugh, when you spent any time at all with him at work, time just flew by. You either wanted Mike on the Radio as a Dispatcher or at the incident with you and when he was, there was nothing you needed, he was always one step ahead. There is a void left in each of us, I cannot imagine what it is like inside Station 20 or in the Radio Room now a days….

The time that each of you devoted to this detail in the past weeks cannot be repaid, but know that it is greatly appreciated!

Our delay in this thank you was so that we could make sure that the Morgan Family and GDH Family could morn their loss and so we could prepare to assist them with the filing of the Line of Duty paperwork.

We have received so many heartfelt messages about what they witnessed last Wednesday and Thursday and how fitting they were for Michael. Personally, I wish I could hug each of you or be able to repay each of you for your services and connections. I can only hope that we don’t need to provide such a service for a fallen member again.

The following links are of photos and videos taken by a select handful of Photographers and Video Specialist of the services as a remembrance of the day and Mike's final farewell.

Thanks again!…/2016-J…/Michael-P-Morgan-Funeral/

Wills for Heroes

Saturday, May 21, 2016  The Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial Committee will host our next Wills for Heroes Program on May 21st 2016 at the Holmes Fire Company!  

The Holmes Fire Company is located at 234 Holmes Rd., Holmes, Pa. 19043 (Ridley Township, PA). Please see the login information below to schedule an appointment! 


Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial Committee, in partnership with the Pennsylvania Bar Association Young Lawyers Division,  sponsored by Ballard Spahr LLP are proud to bring the Wills for Heroes program to you!

Wills for Heroes is a free and easy service that provides Wills, Living Wills, Health Care and Financial Powers of Attorney to first responders and their spouses/partners. If you die without a Will, Pennsylvania’s intestate laws will determine who will receive your property. Undoubtedly, your loved ones’ grief will be overwhelming; a clear expression of your intent, desires, and wishes may help ease some of this inevitable burden. While nobody likes to think about an untimely death, it is best that you express your wishes through a written document. For your family’s peace of mind, please consider this invaluable opportunity, offered completely free to you and your spouse/partner. On May 21, 2016, volunteer lawyers will be conducting a Wills for Heroes Program for all Delaware County First Responders, all sworn personnel and their spouses or significant others. 


The May 21st event will be held at the Holmes Fire Company, 234 Holmes Rd. Holmes, PA 19043 (Ridley Township, PA).  Appointments for each person last approximately 1 hour and at the conclusion of it you will have notarized legal documents – a Will, Living Will, and Health Care and Financial Powers of Attorney (or any combination thereof).  If you select you are coming with a spouse/significant other you will have back to back appointments, and the computer will automatically schedule a second appointment. You do not need to schedule a separate appointment. Please schedule your appointment early as this event is sure to fill up fast. 


Appointments must be scheduled online at   The password is: DELCO 


If you have any questions about the program please contact Sandy Romaszewski at  or Carolyn Capobianco at

** If your estate exceeds approximately $750,000, this service is unavailable to you due to the complexity of your estate and the limited time to complete the legal documents. For determining if your estate is over $750,000, include your cash, personal property, stock and bonds, real estate equity, savings, cash value of a whole/universal life insurance policy only (not the amount of the insurance policy). PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE AVAILABLE ON THE WILLS DAY FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. INDIVIDUALS ARE VOLUNTEERING THEIR TIME FOR THIS PROGRAM. NO-SHOWS ARE STRONGLY DISCOURAGED!! 

This is again at no cost to you at with Thanks to the Holmes Fire Company, the Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial Committee, and the Wills for Heroes program
