"While we continue to feel the loss of Firefighter Brad Harper, our focus now is on ensuring that an accident like this does not happen again.  As the chairman of the City Council Public Safety & Veterans Subcommittee, I can assure you that the safety of the public and our first responders continues to be the number one priority of the city's Fire Department - we will have zero tolerance for employees that do not follow safety protocol.  Chief Khan and his team are using the findings from a thorough analysis of the incident to fortify the department's already solid safety procedures, including the addition of new technology, to offer an extra layer of protection for the women and men who risk their lives to save lives."
