Fallen Brothers» Brian Comerford
On February 19, 2001, the City of Meriden CT Fire Department lost brother FireFighter Brian M. Comerford in an automobile accident. Brian was assigned to Truck Company 1 as a probationary firefighter and had served only six months. Because of his short time on the job, his family does not qualify for benefits.
Brian began his career in August 2000. He was an enthusiastic new recruit who was determined to be a great firefighter. In his short time with us, he showed confidence and a tremendous respect for his new fire service challenge. Without hesitation, Brian assisted with the removal of a trapped occupant via ladder and saved a life. A routine accomplishment for a well disciplined recruit. He loved to train. Always ready, he had the 'Letís Go' attitude that he brought with him from the National Guard. He was proud to serve his country. No matter what the challenge, either for his country or locally in his fire service career, Brian had a never say never attitude. He had that little smirk of confidence in everything that he did for others. His response to a difficult challenge, 'AWESOME!'
Our brother Brian left a wife and three children under the age of six. A tremendous strain has been placed upon the Comerford family. Please support the fundraising effort. Donations can be made to:
