Our Team

Thomas Dobbins

Fire Chief

Born and raised in Marple Township, growing up a block away from the fire station, and a steep family tradition of service in public safety, you could say joining the Broomall Fire Company was inevitable. I joined the BFC in 2000 and have had the privilege of meeting and working beside some of the most knowledgeable firefighters and leaders in the industry.
