South Queens lawmakers to honor fallen firefighter Timothy Klein with state resolution


Just days after the funeral service for fallen FDNY firefighter and Rockaway resident Timothy Klein on April 29, at the Church of St. Francis DeSales in Belle Harbor, state Senator Joseph Addabbo and Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato sponsored a resolution that will have his heroism recognized by New York state.

Klein grew up in Breezy Point and lived in Belle Harbor, two Rockaway neighborhoods represented by both Addabbo and Pheffer Amato.


The six-year veteran of the FDNY responded to a three-alarm fire at a Canarsie home on April 24 and was inside when a ceiling collapsed and critically injured him. He was later pronounced dead at Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center.
