Hometown hero

The Fort Washington Fire Co. lost a veteran volunteer firefighter and 70-year member when George Haggar died of congestive heart failure at Abington Memorial Hospital March 13.

Haggar, who was 88, first joined the FWFC when he was 17-years-old in 1938, and served as a volunteer for 70 consecutive years, as chief from 1955 to 1971, and held elected positions in the organization for 42 years.
