BERWYN, PA - The Berwyn Fire Company was presented with a donation in the amount of $40,000 from Recovery Centers of America (RCA) located in the Devon section of Easttown Township, Chester County.

This marks the 2nd year in a row that RCA was able to present this special donation after providing $25,000 in 2019.
As a non-profit organization we depend on the generous support of citizens and businesses to operate. Along with municipal support we receive from Tredyffrin Township and Easttown Township and medical billing reimbursement, donations represent a critical component of our income to maintain our service delivery.

Berwyn Fire Chief Eamon Brazunas and Berwyn EMS Captain Michael Baskin were presented with the check by Recovery Centers of America at Devon CEO Steve Wicke. The Berwyn Fire Company greatly appreciates the support of Brian O'Neill, founder and CEO of Recovery Centers of America, and the entire RCA team.
