On a recent trip to Collier Township, U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy (R-18) noticed the American flag flying outside the Kirwan Heights Volunteer Fire Department looked tattered.

He decided to bring a new one last week as a replacement.

Murphy briefly stopped by the department April 4 to deliver a new 4-by-6 American flag for the pole on the Washington Pike side of the station. Murphy and members of the fire department then participated in a flag-raising ceremony.

“Thank you for all you do,” Murphy said.

Fire Chief Joe Wissel Jr. said the previous flag became tattered over a long winter.

“Hopefully the new flag brings warm weather,” he said.
