About the wod
This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Andrew Jordan, FDNY, Ladder 132, who was killed on September 11, 2001.
On September 11th, 2001, he went to work, just like everyone else, but unlike your average Joe, Andrew knew that this might be the day he’d lose his life to save someone else’s. See, Andrew was a firefighter.
In 1994, Andrew became a firefighter. He joined up with Division 15, Battalion 38 out of Prospect Heights in Brooklyn in 1995. On September 11th, 2001, Andrew was a proud member of Ladder Company 132, known, eerily appropriately, as “The Eye of the Storm.” One of the things I seemed to see a lot of on comments and in news stories, was how gentle Andrew was.
Firefighter Randy Foss of Ladder 132 described Andrew as “…a real fun loving guy. A big fellow, but a gentle giant.”
“He was a super, super strong guy,” said Lt. John Graziano “but as strong as he was, that’s how nice he was.”
