Officials will rename part of Railroad Street in a ceremony Wednesday in honor of EMS Capt. Alison Russo-Elling.
Russo, 61, served with the Huntington Community First Aid Squad and the Fire Department of New York. She was killed in September in an unprovoked attack on a street near her firehouse in Queens. A man in the neighborhood has been charged with her murder.
Russo had been scheduled to retire from HCFAS in November.
The Town of Huntington, with members of HCFAS, will unveil a street sign with her name. Her father, Frank Fuoco,will speak, and HCFAS will make a presentation.
The ceremony is scheduled for 11 a.m. at the HCFAS, 2 Railroad St., Huntington Station.
The Town Board voted to rename the street at a meeting in January.
