Our Team

James Capuzzi


I joined BFC in 1987 after moving to Marple Township. Prior to that, I served 15 years with the Yeadon Fire Company, along with my 5 brothers. I was hooked at an early age and remember chasing the trucks on my sting-ray bike. I was lucky to serve under strong leaders and with fellow fighters, most of whom have been lifelong friends.
