BROOKLYN, NY - On Sunday, October 22nd, FDNY members and their families attended a street naming ceremony in honor of Firefighter Steven H. Pollard, Ladder 170.

Firefighter Steven H. Pollard of Ladder Company 170 in Brooklyn was a one-and-a-half-year veteran of the FDNY who died from critical injuries sustained while operating at a motor vehicle accident on the Mill Basin Bridge in Brooklyn on Sunday, January 6, 2019.

“At approximately 10 P.M. on Sunday, January 6, Firefighter Pollard responded along with his fellow Firefighters from Ladder Company 170 to a report of a motor vehicle accident with injuries on an elevated portion of the westbound Belt Parkway, just east of Flatbush Avenue. As they were operating and proceeding to help the injured motorists at that accident, Firefighter Pollard slipped through a gap in the roadway and fell approximately 52-feet to the ground below. Firefighter Pollard was appointed as a Firefighter in June of 2017 and assigned to Ladder Company 170 in Brooklyn."
