This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Ruben Correa, FDNY, Engine 74, who was killed on September 11, 2001. He would start in at 10 in the morning, pestering the men of Engine Company 74 on the Upper West Side for a chance to rule the kitchen for a day. “How ’bout I make some fat boys tonight?” Ruben Correa would say, promising steak-and-cheese hoagies that would make them cry for more. The other firemen say that when they sat down to eat, Firefighter Correa, 44, always watched them dig in before taking his first bite, making sure they liked what he had cooked.
