The Commack Fire Department mourns the loss of FDNY EMS Lieutenant Alison Russo-Elling. Our thoughts and prayers go to her family, friends and colleagues.Mayor Eric Adams and Acting Fire Commissioner Laura Kavanagh announced the death of Emergency Medical Service Lieutenant Alison Russo-Elling, a 24-year-veteran of the FDNY who was stabbed and killed Thursday afternoon while working at EMS Station 49 in Queens.

At approximately 2:20pm, Lt. Russo-Elling was on duty in the vicinity of 20th Avenue and Steinway Street in Astoria near her station’s quarters. She was stabbed multiple times in an unprovoked attack. She was transported in critical condition to Mt. Sinai Queens Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries. Lt. Russo-Elling worked out of Station 49 in Astoria at the time she was killed.

Lt. Russo-Elling was appointed to the FDNY as an EMT in March of 1998. She was promoted to Paramedic in 2002, and to Lieutenant in 2016. She has worked at multiple EMS stations, including Station 20, Station 17, Station 16, Station 45, Queens Tactical Response Group and Station 49.

Lt. Russo-Elling was a World Trade Center first responder, aiding in the rescue and recovery efforts. She is the 1,158th member of the Department to make the Supreme Sacrifice while serving our city. The last member of the Department to die in the line of duty was Firefighter Timothy Klein of Ladder 170 on April 24, 2022.

Lt. Russo-Elling was 61 years old. A Long Island resident, she is survived by her daughter and her parents. Wake and funeral information are pending.

How do you comprehend this horrific act?! Her poor family. It’s so so sad. Good Bless her. RIP. Thank you for your service.

My condolences to her family. Criminals should behind bars not walking around free!!! This has to stop. God Bless her family 🙏❤️

This is so horrific, My condolences to her family and freinds and all the EMS. THIS NEVER SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED.

What is happening in this world? Too many people think they have the right to hit, punch or stab others…people that they probably don’t even know. I am heartbroken over this murder. I hope her family knows that she had lived with meaning and purpose in her life, just by the fact that she was a police officer.

Such a tragedy! RIP, Prayers to her family and loved ones! 🙏🙏


Prayers to that family just so so tragic and senseless

Heartbreaking! My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. 🙏🙏

So sad, she didn't deserve this, it breaks my heart.

So heartbreaking. Rip

RIP 🙏 Lt.

R.I.P. Hero’s 🌹🇺🇸🇺🇸

Dotty Ragma You can order from here 👇👇

For the past 2 years my friends and I rode our motorcycles from Denver to Yarnell to honor these hero’s. They have done a wonderful job keeping their memories alive. I will soon incorporate Yarnell into some custom paint work on my bike. Pretty awesome CFD took the time to call this out and remind everyone to NEVER FORGET.
