The firefighter was recently injured in a major fire.

A Bucks County firefighter was recently given a warm welcome back home after suffering an injury in the line of duty.

Nick Altomare, a firefighter with the Nottingham Fire Department of Bensalem, was greeted by members of all the Bensalem Townships Emergency services when he arrived home following an injury. He had fallen from a ladder while responding to a fire in the area last week; he stayed at Jefferson Torresdale Hospital while recovering.

Members of the Bensalem Fire Rescue, Bensalem EMS, Newport Fire Company, Cornwells Fire Company, and Bensalem Police Department lined up outside of his house to greet and thank him for his service.

“Thanks to the neighbors who also came out to welcome Nick back,” the fire department said online. “Nicks not out of the woods just yet he still has a long road ahead.”

While no details of his injuries were made public, none of them were life-threatening.
