BROOKLYN - First responders in Brooklyn shared a special lunch today in honor of one of their own who died a few months ago after living a life dedicated to helping others.

Brian Nolan, 56, was an EMT worker at EMS Station 40 in Sunset Park. He passed way from an illness this past April. At his funeral, one of his EMT colleagues told a story about how Nolan gave his sandwich away one day at lunch to a patient who said he was hungry.

Nolan's surviving family was so touched by the story that they brought a plaque and some sandwiches over to the station for lunch today, to say thanks for everything they did to help the family during Nolan's final days.

Family members say they want the Brooklyn community to remember what a special man Nolan was, and to appreciate all the people who work in the borough to help save lives.
