On Danielle "Danielle Moffett works full time. She's raising a 4-year-old daughter, and is expecting another baby in a few months. Yet she still finds time to volunteer as an EMT and firefighter at Malvern Fire Company. How does she do it? One week at a time. "I'm primarily working just EMS one day a week for a seven to eight hour shift," she said. "The firehouse in Malvern has been great about not locking me into a schedule. I volunteer when I can. I work with my work schedule and my daughter's school schedule." Before joining the crew at Malvern, Moffett helped communities across the country. She joined the American Red Cross of Massachusetts in 2010 as a member of its Disaster Action Team. When she moved to Charlotte, N.C. the following year, she transferred to the Charlotte chapter of the Red Cross, where she led the Disaster Action Team for three years. "We responded primarily to fires but any disaster/incident where people were displaced," she said. "During that time I also became qualified as an EMT." She initially saw an advertisement looking for volunteers at Malvern and "thought it would be a great opportunity to expand what I could do and contribute to the community." Her husband has been very supportive of her volunteering efforts with the fire station and their daughter has already hinted about following in her mom's footsteps. She regularly goes to the station with her mom and loves to ask the EMTs questions and play on the fire trucks. "She's already made a list of things she wants to be when she grows up: she wants to be an EMT and a dance teacher," said Moffett. "I made the list!" https://patch.com/pennsylvania/westchester/volunteer-moms-keep-chester-county-safe Thanks for all you do Annmarie and Danielle!" />

Two of our very own volunteers, Danielle Moffet and Annemarie Patton were recently featured in a Chester County Fire Chiefs Association article highlighting the contributions of Chester County mothers to their communities. With Mothers Day around the corner, the article features a handful of Chester County volunteers who manage to make time as first responders in addition to their busy lives as moms- two of them with Malvern!

below are the excerpts on Annmarie and Danielle as well as a link to the entire article that was republished by Patch that introduces you to all of these impressive moms.

On Annmarie

"Volunteering at a fire company doesn't have to mean becoming a first responder. There are plenty of other ways to serve. For example, for the last year Annemarie Patton has served as the Malvern Fire Company department photographer and was named company secretary this past January.

"My opportunity to volunteer at the Malvern Fire Company came about when my son joined the company to become a firefighter," she said. "I never knew how much time and effort the volunteers put into training, education, running calls and running the fire company. So when my son asked me to join as their photographer, I was thrilled that there was a way for me to help."

Patton's roles have allowed her to see the business side of running a fire company, while also taking pictures at a fire scene. Plus she's delighted to get to spend more time with her son at the station and on calls.

"The members of the Malvern Fire Company are a wonderful group of dedicated and hardworking individuals, who welcomed me warmly," she said, "and I am proud to be a part of this organization."

On Danielle
