This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Dennis Cross, FDNY, Battalion 57, who was killed on September 11, 2001. Dennis Cross, 60, a city firefighter for 39 years before his death on Sept. 11, wanted to put in 40 years. A chief of Battalion 57 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, he died in the south tower.

In the beginning of his 37-year career with the New York City Fire Department, Dennis Cross asked to be transferred to a busy company because he wanted to respond to more fires; in the end, as a battalion chief, he would go into the blazes as far as any man with whom he worked. The fireman still crawled into the building to put out the fire the same way as 50 years ago.
