Bucks County Fire Company Creates Benefit Fund for Injured Firefighter

Bensalem Fire Rescue and Nottingham Fire Department are helping an injured firefighter on his road to recovery.

Firefighter and EMT Nick Weaver was injured after falling from a third story roof while battling a house fire in May. The 35-foot fall left Weaver with numerous fractures in his back, along with a head injury. He has since been released from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, but his fellow firefighters say he has a long road to recovery. 

To show their support, Bensalem Township Firefighters and Nottingham Fire Department have set up a GoFundMe account for Weaver to help with financial burdens. 

"We at Bensalem Fire Rescue and Nottingham Fire Department are setting up this GoFundMe account as a way for friends and family to show their love and support for two honest, hardworking and incredible people, who mean everything to us," the page reads, "No donation is too small."

Before the fall, Weaver recently moved to Bensalem with his fiancee, Erin, and the two were planning a wedding for early 2017. This account will help the couple with living expenses and other unexpected financial burdens that may arise as Weaver continues to recover.
