About the wod
Background: This workout is dedicated to DC Firefighter Alex Graham of Engine Company 21 who passed away on October 27, 2019, after suffering a medical emergency at a training facility.
The 17-year veteran known as “Big Al” suffered a heart attack and collapsed on October 24, 2019 while conducting a water flow test at the training facility in Blue Plains and died three days after surrounded by his family at George Washington University Hospital. He is the District’s 101st firefighter to die in the line of duty and the first since Lt. Kevin McRae had a heart attack at a fire in Shaw in 2015.
The workout was designed by a fellow firefighter Lt. Kara Judd @st.florianfitness. It is a part of Line of Duty Death (LODD) honor workouts for firefighters who died of cardiac causes.
