Lieut of Ladder 19, is C/A/O at the hospital, talking to everyone. Scuttlebutt is confusing, some say yes he was given CPR and some say he was not, and that he never coded. Nevertheless he appears to be doing fine."Loyalty Above all Else. Except Honor."

Very surprising (to me) that it was someone from L19. They are part of our Haz-Mat team, and while we as a department are not required to have annual physicals, the Haz-Mat members are.
Buff, if you know a name or more info, get a hold of me.Opinions expressed are mine alone, and do not necessarily reflect those of the Philadelphia Fire Department and/or IAFF Local 22.

The NBC station is saying the brother had a heart attack.
Also his name is listed in the link. I didn't want to post it outright.
Prayers for a quick recovery!!
