Statement from UFA President Gerard Fitzgerald on the Death of Firefighter Steven H. Pollard, Ladder Company 170

NEW YORK CITY – On behalf of all UFA members, we extend our deepest sympathies to FF Steven Pollard's family, friends, and his fellow firefighters at Engine 257, Ladder 170 and Battalion 58.

In his short amount of time on the job, Steven Pollard made a massive impact in the Brooklyn community and was very well liked by his Officers and fellow Firefighters for his excellent work.

Steven came from a line of firefighters who time and time again put their lives on the line to protect all New Yorkers.

Steven truly epitomized what it means to be one of 'New York's Bravest' and will be dearly missed.
