– The House recently approved legislation introduced by Rep. Thomas Kutz (R-Cumberland) that would designate the bridge carrying PA Route 34 over Mountain Creek in Mount Holly Springs Borough in memory of fallen firefighter and community servant, Jerome Guise.
Guise was a 17-year firefighter serving with Citizen’s Fire Co. No.1 in Mount Holly Springs. He died tragically in the line of duty when a house collapsed during a two-alarm fire on March 9, 2020.
“Jerome gave his life in service to our community, and he is missed throughout it today. It is an honor to have worked to preserve his memory and I look forward to the formal dedication of the Firefighter Jerome Guise Memorial Bridge. The bridge will serve as a reminder to honor Jerome’s bravery and sacrifice and inspire gratitude for the many first responders in our community,” said Kutz.
Details for a formal bridge dedication ceremony will be forthcoming. Questions about the bridge dedication or any other state-related issue can be directed to Kutz’s office at 717-975-2235.
