It’s with deep regret that we pass on that Lt. Brian J. Sullivan, a 27-year veteran FDNY Firefighter who was in Squad 41 in the Bronx died in the Line of Duty from a heart attack he suffered at his home following a call during his 24-hour shift.
Lt. Brian J. Sullivan, of Squad 41 in the Bronx, returned home Friday after responding to an apartment kitchen fire, the final emergency call of his 24-hour tour. During his shift, he complained about pain and discomfort, but he still kept going out on calls. After he returned home in Monroe (Orange Co, north of NYC), Lieutenant Sullivan went into cardiac arrest, and he was taken to Orange County Regional Medical. He was later pronounced dead at 1210 hours on Saturday.
Lt Sullivan, by all accounts, was a beloved Fire Officer and Firefighter who was a proud member of the FDNY Special Operations Command. He is survived by his wife, Irene, and two daughters, Nicole, 22, and Samantha, 17. A wake for Sullivan will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, as well as 1 to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Smith Seaman & Quackenbush, Inc.,117 Maple Ave. East Monroe. The funeral will be at 11 a.m. Friday at Sacred Heart Church, 26 Still Road, Monroe. Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
