Marple EMS participated in the annual Marple Newtown 4th of July Day Parade. As one spectator said, “It’s like a sea of white”. Right before the parade, Marple EMS was dispatched to two back to back calls so both Medic 53-7 and Medic 53-7A were both not in the parade. This was one of the biggest parade in many years. Our friends from Edgmont Fire Company, who was at the end of the parade, said they didn’t leave the Newtown Sq Shopping Center until 11am (1 hour past start time).
