“Lieutenant Sullivan was a veteran fire officer and a dedicated member of our elite Special Operations Command who bravely served the Department for nearly three decades,” said Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. “The city and the entire Department mourn the loss of this brave individual who spent his career protecting life and property and rescuing others from harm.”
Lt. Sullivan is the 1,153rd member of the FDNY to die as a result of injuries sustained in the line-of-duty.
This is a tragic loss for the Fire Department and for the City of New York. Our prayers go out to his wife Irene, and daughters Nicole and Samantha.
