TRAPPE PA – A portion of Main Street in Trappe Borough would be renamed as the “Trooper Branden T. Sisca Memorial Highway” under legislation jointly proposed by state Reps. Joe Ciresi and Joe Webster, they announced Wednesday (Aug. 24, 2022).
Ciresi, of the state’s 146th House District, and Webster in the 150th District – both covering parts of Montgomery County – said they intend to honor the memory of Sisca, a Trappe resident and fire chief. He and another trooper, Martin F. Mack III, were killed earlier this year in an on-duty accident involving an allegedly intoxicated driver.
Sisca, age 29, had served with the Pennsylvania State Police for 13 months.
Sisca’s death “was a terrible loss for the Trappe community and the commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” Ciresi said. He “dedicated his life to protecting Pennsylvanians, some he had known all his life, others strangers,” as both a state trooper and volunteer firefighter. “To both, his commitment was total.”
Sisca “embodied the meaning of being a public servant. His selfless commitment to putting the needs of others first made him a pillar of our community,” Webster said. “We are forever grateful for Trooper Sisca’s dedication to his community, and proud to keep his legacy alive.”
The portion of Main Street to be renamed is near the Trappe Fire Company, “and this designation would serve as a reminder of (Sisca’s) selfless service and sacrifice,” Ciresi noted.
The proposal is currently known as House Bill 2786.
