AC44170 - Clark v. Waterford (Heart benefits pursuant to General Statutes § 7-433c; Heart and Hypertension Act; “The town claims the board improperly affirmed the decision of the commissioner by failing to apply the definition of the term member as provided in General Statutes § 7-425 (5) when determining whether the plaintiff was entitled to benefits under § 7-433c. The question on appeal is whether the plaintiff was a ‘uniformed member of a paid municipal fire department’ while he was employed by the town as a parttime firefighter. (Emphasis added.) General Statutes § 7-433c. We affirm the decision of the board.”)
