Member Spotlights

Meet some of your neighbors who volunteer their time to serve their community.

Our members are scattered throughout Yardley and Lower Makefield – they’re people just like you – who felt a calling to help others in need!

Barry DiNola

Assistant Chief, Station 0

Owner, Yardley Jewelers

When Barry isn’t busy making quality custom jewelry on Main Street in Yardley Borough, he volunteers as the Assistant Chief of Station 0. Barry has been a very active member for over 20 years and was previously a member of the West Trenton Fire Company for 7 years. He has said the following about his experience: “I love the satisfaction of doing something that makes you feel good inside. Meeting other people with the same passion I have for giving back to the community has been such a wonderful part of my life.”

Gena Grant

Firefighter, Station 0

Certified Public Accountant

Gena is a working Mom who makes the time to volunteer and help her community. Gena not only responds to fire and rescue calls, but also serves on various committees at the firehouse. Gena moved to Yardley several years ago and joined the fire company “as an exciting way to both help and get to know my new community.”

Jimmy Egan

Firefighter, Station 80

Sr. District Business Manager, Bristol Meyers Squibb

Jimmy has been a member of the fire company since 2020, when he felt the calling to serve his community. When he isn’t at work or responding to fire calls, Jimmy can also be found volunteering his time with the Wounded Warrior Project and Soldier’s Child. Here is what Jimmy has to say about his involvement with the fire company: “I love being part of YMFC. It gives me a chance to serve my community and live out a life long dream of being a firefighter; with the flexibility that balances my volunteer service with my professional responsibilities.”

Matt Berry

Lieutenant, Station 80

Firefighter, Northampton Fire Department

It didn’t take long for Matt to fall in love with volunteer firefighting. After completing fire school, Matt became a very active member, soaking up everything he could to serve the community as best as possible. He quickly made his way to becoming an officer and can be seen leading teams of volunteers at calls. Matt has always been interested in becoming a firefighter, but ultimately joined because “it gave me the opportunity to earn the required certifications I would need for a career firefighter position. I have fallen in love with the fire service – becoming a volunteer has allowed me to make memories and meet people I now call my best friends.”

Amy Fisher

Lieutenant, Station 80

Behavioral Health Social Worker, Corizon Health

Amy was introduced to the lifestyle of volunteer firefighting at a young age, with her father being a member of this fire company since before she was born. Amy is a firefighter, an officer, and runs our Special Events Committee, leading fun events for the members and their families. When asked about the most rewarding thing Amy finds about volunteer firefighting, she has said, “The feeling of being able to help others no matter how big or small the incident. Whether it’s putting their mind at ease after checking their homes and finding a faulty CO detector or fire alarm, or working to save their home during a devastating house fire – being able to be there to support someone in their moment of need is the biggest privilege. And the firehouse family that I’ve gained is an added bonus!”

Dave Wells

Firefighter, Station 0

Owner/ Barber, Yardley Family Haircutters

If you’ve ever received a haircut at Yardley Family Haircutters, you may have seen Dave run out the back door in between cuts to respond to a call! Dave has been an important part of this fire company, from responding to calls as a firefighter to driving the apparatus, since 1991. His son, Andrew, is also a volunteer firefighter with our company. Dave joined the fire company “when a building next door to me caught fire at the old variety store. I realized these guys fighting this fire were actually people who I rode the school bus with when I was a kid and other local business owners. I felt it was a way for me to do my part and help the town and community.”
