Goodwin, Sr. joined the Philadelphia Fire Department in September 1983. He rose through the ranks through promotion to lieutenant in 2003, captain in 2008, and battalion chief posthumously.
Battalion Chief Michael R. Goodwin, Sr. answered his final call on April 6, 2013. Sacrificing himself to protect the people of Philadelphia, he fell approximately 20 feet through the roof of the burning building.
