‘A FITTING TRIBUTE’
Trooper Branden T. Sisca Memorial Highway dedicated
State Reps. Joe Ciresi and Joe Webster held a road dedication ceremony in Trappe to unveil a memorial sign in honor of Trooper Branden T. Sisca, who was killed in the line of duty in 2022.
“Branden Sisca dedicated his life to protecting others in service of the community he loved,” Ciresi said. “Although nothing can fill the void that Branden’s tragic passing left, Rep. Webster and I thought weaving Branden’s legacy into the fabric of the community through the road dedication would help us all heal. From this day forward, everyone traveling through Trappe will be reminded of Branden’s life of public service as a volunteer firefighter and Pennsylvania State Trooper. Thank you to everyone who worked tirelessly to make today’s ceremony a tremendous success.”
The memorial sign designates a portion of State Route 4031 (Main Street) between Fifth Avenue and State Route 4048, also known as Seventh Avenue, in Trappe as the Trooper Branden T. Sisca Memorial Highway.
“Today we honor the life and service of Trappe Fire Chief and PA State Trooper Branden Sisca who dedicated his life to public service and protection of our community,” Webster said. “This dedication stands as a show of our sincere gratitude for his service and our pledge to honor his memory and sacrifice. Thank you to everyone who ensured today’s ceremony was a fitting tribute.”
Sisca was fire chief of the Trappe Fire Company and a state trooper with the Pennsylvania State Police.
Sisca, 29, and another trooper, Martin F. Mack III, were struck and killed by a drunk driver on March 21, 2022, while on duty along a section of Interstate 95
Sisca’s family, including wife Brittany and daughter Brynn, were on hand for the ceremony.
Born in Norristown on June 23, 1992, Sisca and his family were residents of Trappe, and he graduated from Perkiomen Valley High School. He later attended West Chester University to earn a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and Eastern Kentucky University for a master’s degree in Safety, Security and Emergency Management.
Since 2008, Trooper Sisca served as a volunteer firefighter with the Trappe Fire Company, where he would go on to serve as treasurer and fire chief. In
