Meet Dave Phillips! Dave Phillips joined in May of 2016 after being inspired by his father, Erik Phillips, who joined in 1988, and intrigued by the life of a firefighter. Since joining, Dave has turned in his blue junior helmet for a yellow one. He attended Burlington County ESTC during the 2017 spring semester and graduated with his Firefighter I certification that summer. Dave was one of our most active junior members ever and has continued on to be one of our most active firefighters. He is on track to be one of our Top 10 responders for the year as well.
Dave attended Hopewell Valley Central High School and graduated this year with the class of 2018. He enjoyed playing for both the football and baseball teams. This fall he started classes at Rider University in Lawrence and will continue to be an active member with our department. Dave will be taking classes toward a criminal justice degree with hopes to eventually land a position in law enforcement and continue his service as a first responder.
