This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Vincent Giammona, FDNY, Ladder 5, who was killed on September 11, 2001.

At about 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 7, Lt. Vincent F. Giammona was at Coney Island, flashing his fireman's badge and, once again, pushing the limits.

He had just spent the morning exploring the aquarium with his wife, Theresa, and their two youngest daughters — Nicolette, 4, and Daniella, 2. They had started back home to Valley Stream, when, suddenly, he turned the car around. He couldn't go to Coney Island without riding the Cyclone roller coaster.
The morning of Lieutenant Giammona's 40th birthday, Theresa would hear his voice for the last time: he said goodbye during a brief phone call while hurrying to the World Trade Center. On Sept. 7, though, when the Cyclone started its descent, she heard him shout with joy.
