While returning for Monday Night’s class the building assignment was dispatched for the 500 Block of Royal Ave. Squad 58 (Captain Baron and Captain McClay) responded on dispatch with a crew of seven. Arriving within 90 seconds crew found heavy fire on divisions 2 & 3. Two hand lines were immediately placed into service and a water supply was established. Two additional hand lines were also placed into service by responding mutual aid. Chief 58 had command and the fire was placed under control at the 55 minute mark. Multiple special calls were made for manpower (eventually bringing the assignment to 2 alarms) through the incident. We would like to thank all those who assisted; Manoa Fire Company, Llanerch Fire Company, Brookline Fire Company, Oakmont Fire Company, Broomall Fire Company, Garrettford-Drexel Hill Fire Co., Upper Darby Fire Department and Narberth Ambulance. In addition we thank the multiple fire companies who covered the township. Crews operated on scene just over 3 hours. No injuries were reported.

Thanks for the info!
Unfortunately we morn yet another loss for the fire service in both Upper Darby and Delaware County.
Chief Hicks was not just an amazing individual and Firefighter, he was a long time friend to the Bon Air Fire Company. A man who would do anything for anyone. A 1st class gentleman and an officer! Someone who never lost sight of who he was or what he wanted. Always putting his family first and the Fire Service second, especially the Highland Park Fire Company and the Upper Darby Fire Department
A mentor to so many, we thank you, Chief Hicks, for everything you did for all of us and hope that your rest is easy. ... See MoreSee Less

Saluting our Hometown Heroes –
BRUCE MCCLAY, FIRE FIGHTER - Bon Air Fire Co.
For almost 6 years Bruce has been a dedicated member of the station who joined the ranks in 2013. Bruce is currently serving in the role of captain and is one of our top fire crew runners. Bruce has also held positions that include lieutenant, engineer, and vice-president. In addition to Bon Air, Bruce has served in different capacities at other fire stations including Reliance, Highland Park and Collingdale fire companies.
When asked what inspired him to become a firefighter Bruce answered, “It was in my blood.” Bruce’s parents and grandparents were all very active at the station. In fact, one of our very coveted annual spirit awards is named after Bruce’s grandfather Sam McClay.
Bruce lives near the station with his furry K-9 friends Maggie, Sunny and Dova. When not working hard around the station or on calls Bruce is an electrician at 4D Electric and loves going to the beach, fishing and double action practice shooting. When it comes to sports Bruce is known to sport his Eagles, Phillies and Flyers gear when in season.
Bon Air Fire Company is very proud to have just celebrated 100 years of service to the residents of Haverford. As we thank Bruce for his service we also want to salute all emergency first responders who dedicate their lives to protecting and serving the community. ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations Well Deserved, A Honor Bruce Thank you for your service and support to your local Fire company God bless
Congratulations Bruce. Very proud of you.❤️
I saw this poem and felt it appropriate: Son, I closed my eyes for a moment and suddenly a man stood where a boy used to be. I may not carry you now in my arms but I will always carry you in my heart. You have given me so many reasons to be proud of the man you have become, but the proudest moment for me is telling others that you are my son. I love you now and forever. Mom ♥️
Congrats Bruce C. McClay!
