According to an announcement posted on the Malvern Fire Company website last week "over his more than forty years of service, Nick provided visionary leadership in numerous capacities within the region’s fire and emergency services. His long-term service to the Malvern Fire Company included many years as EMS Chief, as well as numerous other operational and administrative positions. He began his professional career at Paoli Memorial Hospital, where he served in several capacities, including the Cardio Pulmonary Team and as the first Paramedic Supervisor for Medic 92."
Chief Campbell was ALS Director for Brandywine Hospital’s Medic 93 and Skyflight care for much of his career. Under Nick’s visionary leadership, Malvern Fire Company established the first fire department-based paramedic service in Chester County. His distinguished service included serving as President of the Chester County Emergency Medical Services Council.
