Chief Hayden honored by RCLMN
On January 30, Chief Tom Hayden (owner of Hayden Printing which does our candidate mailings) of the Merion Fire Company of Ardmore was in Haverford at the time a building fire was reported. He was the first to arrive on the scene and was informed by a resident that an elderly woman was unaccounted for in the building. In order to save her, Chief Hayden ran into the building, entered the victim's bedroom on his hands and knees and found the victim unconscious. As he was taking her out of the room, he was met by Lower Merion Police Officer Mike Pleasant who helped him carry the victim from the smoke filled apartment.
When interviewed by the local tv stations, Chief Hayden refused to take credit for his save and instead humbly told the media that a "volunteer firefighter" made the rescue. Many of us forget that our local firefighters are volunteers. Thank you to Chief Hayden, Officer Pleasant and all the firefighters who put their lives on the line for our safety!
