This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to John Collins, FDNY, Ladder 25, who was killed on September 11, 2001. When John Collins was 4 years old, his father took him to a Bronx firehouse. That is when he decided what he wanted to do. It took a while, with entrance exams delayed because of a legal dispute, so he joined the Police Department first before becoming a fireman in 1990.

On Sept. 11, he was supposed to go to another firehouse to fill in. It was called out before he could get there. When Ladder 25 was called, he jumped on the engine. “We had seven firemen on the rig instead of six,” said another fireman, Matt O’Hanlon.
