Deputy Chief Brian M. Gallagher Passes

The Kimberton Fire Department regrets to announce the passing of Phoenixville Fire Department Deputy Chief Brian Gallagher.  Chief Gallagher passed Friday August 28th after a sudden medical emergency at the Chester County Hospital.

Brian began his fire service career with the Kimberton Fire Company in 1972.  He worked his way up the ranks to Captain, before changing his career direction to the Township Fire Marshal’s Office.  From there he continued to build his code and investigation skills and became the Deputy Chief Fire Marshal for the County of Chester Fire Marshal’s Office.

Brain served the County in many capacities.  He served as the President of the Northern Chester County Fire Chief’s Association, worked at several municipalities as a Fire Marshall and Codes Officer, worked in the County’s original Fire Communications Center (long before 911), and managed his own consulting and fire investigation business.

He mentored the youth in the fire department and worked hard to install the values of the fire service to anyone who would listen.  He always spoke of how to teach our younger members the skills needed to keep the volunteer fire service alive and well in the future.  He wanted them to know their ‘history’ and how that impacted the future.

Rest in Peace my Brother.
