It is with deep regret that we pass on the death of Probationary Firefighter Vincent Malveaux. Probationary Firefighter Malveaux, 31, from Brooklyn, suffered a medical episode during morning training on Thursday, December 2, 2021, at the FDNY Training Academy on Randall’s Island. He was transported to Harlem Hospital and passed away on Friday, December 3rd. Probationary Firefighter Malveaux is the 1,154th member of the FDNY to die as a result of injuries sustained in the line-of-duty. He is survived by his parents, Loyd and Vincent.
He was previously an FDNE EMT before being accepted into the fire academy.
FDNY Commissioner Nigro said, “This is a heartbreaking loss of a young man who chose a life of brave service to others, first providing outstanding emergency medical care as an EMT in the Bronx and then training to be a New York City Firefighter. Our entire Department mourns the passing of this heroic individual who dedicated himself to saving lives. Our thoughts are with his family, our EMTs who worked closely beside him, and his fellow Probies.”
Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
