The Officers and Members of Lindenwood Volunteer Ambulance Corps extend our deepest condolences to our colleagues at the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) on their tragic Line of Duty Death of Probationary Firefighter Steven Pollard, Ladder Company 170 who succumbed from critical injuries sustained while operating at a motor vehicle accident (Brooklyn Box 8628) on the Mill Basin Bridge in Brooklyn on Sunday, January 6, 2019.

He is the 1,151st member of the FDNY to make the Supreme Sacrifice in the line-of-duty. Firefighter Pollard is survived by his mother, Janet; father, retired Firefighter Raymond Pollard who served for 32 years in the FDNY; and his brother, Firefighter Raymond Pollard, an 11-year veteran of Ladder Company 114 in Brooklyn.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Pollard family and his extended family of FDNY as they cope with his sudden loss. We along with the rest of NYC mourn his passing while trying to save lives and keeping our great city safe for all.

Well it looks like our 1997 Ford Expedition will likely need replacement soon.

We were fortunate to have this vehicle donated by our colleagues at the Medford Fire Department NY back in 2007 and has served Lindenwood VAC faithfully since.

We are hoping to have another vehicle donated to Lindenwood VAC. We are seeking a 4x4 SUV. Preferably a Tahoe or Suburban Police/Special Service Package, but will consider any make, especially if it is a Police/Special Service Package.

If you know a EMS or Fire department who will be excessing a vehicle that you think Lindenwood VAC could benefit from, or you can help please contact Deputy Chief Buonincontri at deputychief@lvac.net
