This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Michael Elferis, FDNY, Engine 22, who was killed on September 11, 2001.

“Mikey had touched so many people here in College Point that it left another giant hole in the neighborhood,” says his kid sister, Nancy. “He had hundreds of friends. He played every sport as a kid and then as a police officer with NYPD and later for FDNY, where he fulfilled his childhood dream of being a fireman. Mikey played and coached kids’ roller hockey in College Point. He loved the Yankees, Giants and the Rangers. He was really handsome, funny and smart and single and he took full advantage of it.” She pauses to let her emotions settle. “Mikey lived, loved and laughed. And left behind a lot of broken hearts.”
