RIP BrotherOur sincere condolences go out to the friends and family of FDNY Probationary Firefighter Steven H. Pollard.

Firefighter Pollard lost his life last night in the process of helping others. He was assigned to Ladder Company 170 in Brooklyn. At approximately 10 p.m. they were called to the Belt Parkway just east of Flatbush, to a 2-car accident with injuries. As they were going to help the victims at that accident, Firefighter Pollard slipped through a gap in the roadway and fell to the ground approximately 52 feet below.
