About the wod
This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Sean Hanley, FDNY, Ladder 20, who was killed on September 11, 2001.
Sean had second thoughts about being a firefighter several years ago when three friends died in the line of duty. But his two grandfathers, father, and a brother were firefighters, and he decided the job was in his blood – no matter what the risk.
On Sept. 11, Sean finished his night shift as a firefighter with Ladder Co. 20 in the SoHo section of Manhattan and planned to stop by his friend’s midtown office. As he drove away in his black truck at around 8:45 a.m., he flipped on the radio and heard that the Twin Towers were on fire; he rushed directly to the World Trade Center.
