Paoli Fire Company Elects New Fire Chief

 

Paoli, Pennsylvania - May 11, 2016 - Last night, members of Paoli Fire Company held elections for select key leadership positions within the organization, including Fire Chief.  After a strong voter turn-out of Active and Honorary Life Members, Andrea Testa was named the new Fire Chief of Paoli Fire Company.  It is believed that Chief Testa is the first female Fire Chief in Chester County history.

 

Chief Testa remarked, “I am humbled by the support and honored to lead Paoli Fire Company into the next chapter of its proud history of providing emergency services to our community. In addition, I would like to thank all of the members of the company for their continued participation and commitment.  Moreover, I would like to thank Chief Dutter for his leadership and dedication during his tenure as Chief.”  Chief Testa assumed command last night and is now responsible for all operational activity for the fire company. 

 

First Female Fire Chief In Chester County

According to Chester County Department of Emergency Services Director Robert Kagel, Chief Testa is the first woman to be elected to the position of Fire Chief in the history of Chester County.  Chief Testa has an extensive background in emergency services, with more than 25 years as a firefighter/emergency medical technician in both Kimberton Fire Company and Paoli Fire Company, and having served the last 10 years as an Assistant Chief at PFC. Andrea has a degree in Fire Science Technology and a second degree in Emergency Management & Planning. In addition, she is employed as the full-time Chief Fire Marshal for West Goshen Township responsible for code enforcement/emergency management and fire incident investigation.

 

A complete review of the election results, including other key leadership roles, is available at the fire company website: Paolifirecompany.org
