"We have lost a dear friend and a great firefighter," said Local 22 President Joe Schulle. "Joyce made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting the citizens of Philadelphia. It's our hope that people will open their hearts and checkbooks to help support her two beloved children she's left behind. The men and women of Local 22 greatly appreciate the incredible outpouring of support we have received from the public during this extremely difficult time."
Schulle said that the administration has never approached the union to discuss ending brownouts, but he’s glad to hear it’s being considered.
