New Tripoli Firefighters Die Battling Blaze in Schuylkill County

December 8, 2022


Our condolences go out to the men and women of the New Tripoli Fire Company. We are shocked and saddened by the news that two firefighters, Assistant Chief Zachary Paris and Marvin Gruber, died yesterday while trying to save people trapped in a burning house in West Penn Township.

These men knew the risks they took every time the alarm rang, and they still answered the call. We are so very fortunate to have such brave men and women willing to put their lives on the line to protect our community.

Please join the bank, its Directors and employees, in sending deepest sympathies and heartfelt love for the lost, their families, and the other members of the Fire Company and their families in this difficult time.
