Bridgeport, CT It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Fire Marshal Alberto Hernandez. 

Mayor Ganim stated, “I want to extend my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Alberto Hernandez. We are all very grateful to have lived in a community where we could be under Hernandez’s protection as a Fire Marshal for the City of Bridgeport. He was a widely loved member of our community, and he will truly be missed by all who knew him.

Chief Lance Edwards stated, “Al served as the Fire Marshal for the last four years. His laughter and jokes were one of his staples. He was always making light of a situation and reminding us of the lighter side of life. With over 24 years in the department, he’s touched countless lives and left just as many memories.” 

All are encouraged to keep Hernandez’s family in your prayers and thoughts during this time. All flags are currently being flown at half-staff until further notice.
