Firefighter Ron Erbel’s widow not done fighting for her late husband’s memory after Village OK’s $75K benefit

The Village Council voted unanimously this week to bestow a $75,000 death benefit to the family of Ronald Erbel, the firefighter who died of cancer after responding to the World Trade Center following the 2001 terrorist attack. 

But his widow still wants Key Biscayne to designate Erbel’s death as occurring in the line of duty – a term that decades later is still legally unsettled.
