Thomas “Wolfie” Wolfarth was a dedicated paramedic and flight medic from Havertown, who died at the age of 42 in 2009 after a long battle with brain cancer. The Wolfie Fund was established by his friends and family to provide support for training and education of Delaware County’s first responders.
During The Foundation for Delaware County’s first year, the Wolfie Fund supported a grant to the Delaware County Board of Fire and Life Safety to purchase equipment for the new Thomas Wolfarth EMS Pediatric Simulation Center at Delaware County’s Public Safety Training Center.
