Family near victory to have fallen firefighter's name on memorial

After a five-year battle, the family and friends of fallen Malverne firefighter Paul Brady are close to having his name placed on the state's Fallen

MALVERNE - After a five-year battle, the family and friends of fallen Malverne firefighter Paul Brady are close to having his name placed on the state's Fallen Firefighter Memorial Wall.

Brady was killed in 2006 after being crushed while doing maintenance work on a fire truck during a training exercise.

The state denied his name from the memorial because it said the requirements list that a firefighter must have died in the line of duty to be placed on the wall.

Family and friends lobbied the state Legislature and just won approval to add his name to the wall.

However, before Brady's name can be added, the law must first be signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
