FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -
Passing of Trappe Fire Chief Branden Sisca

March 21, 2022 – Trappe, PA – Trappe Fire Company is mourning the loss of our Fire Chief Branden Sisca. Branden has been serving Trappe Borough and surrounding communities for over a decade beginning in 2009 as a Junior Firefighter.

Earlier today, Branden paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving the
residents of Pennsylvania in his capacity as a Pennsylvania State Trooper. Branden along with his partner Pennsylvania State Trooper Martin Mack, were struck and killed by an oncoming vehicle on I-95 in Philadelphia while trying to assist a citizen on the highway.

Branden served as Lieutenant, Captain, Battalion Chief, Deputy Chief and most recently Fire Chief. He also served in an administrative role as Fire Company Treasurer.

Chief Sisca leaves behind a wife, yet to be born child, and his parents.

The Trappe Fire Company would also like to express its deepest condolences to the family of State Police Trooper Martin Mack as well as to the loved ones of the civilian who they were trying to help on the highway.

As the Trappe Fire Company and emergency services community take time to process this tragedy, we are
respectfully requesting that the family and fire company be given time to grieve.

Questions may be directed to Pennsylvania State Police or Trappe Fire Company at: [email protected].

Today our firefighters joined with the firefighters of Independent Fire Company of Jenkintown at Temple Beth-Am in Abington to participate in the funeral of firefighter Andy Kaufmann who was a member of both companies. His family is in our thoughts and prayers. To his family our chaplain offered this prayer: "May the Omnipresent comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem, Amen."
Thank you to Independent Fire Company for hosting and Pioneer Fire Company #1 for joining FAST Rescue Solutions training last week. These two companies are a couple of the many fire companies in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania that either have FAST Boards or have been trained on why, how and when to use them with mutual aid companies. It is great to see an area local to the FAST Rescue Solutions Headquarters regionalizing and adapting the cultural shift from current trends in the fire service related to firefighter and civilian rescue. We are crushing the culture with a game changing hasty rescue device. The fire companies in the area have really taking the initiative to our 'Five Or Die' mantra and 'Saving Our Own...FAST.' At a few recent fires in the area, there have been as many as 8 FAST Boards available.

We would like to add you to our 2020 training schedule by providing you with a demonstration or one of our variety of training packages. To learn more contact us at [email protected] or through our website at fastrescuesolutions.com!
