This Firefighter Hero WOD is is dedicated to John Tierney, FDNY, Ladder 9, who was killed on September 11, 2001.
John Patrick Tierney was a Fire Department “probie,” but he conducted himself like a veteran. His shift at Ladder Co. 9 in the Manhattan’s East Village had just ended on Sept. 11 when the call came in to head to the Twin Towers. There was no room on the truck, so he sat on the lap of another firefighter as they rushed to the disaster site.
They entered Tower 1 and had climbed to the 30th floor when the call came to evacuate. He was last seen in the lobby. Five members of his company made it out, but three — including Mr. Tierney — are among the missing. The 27-year-old had been a probationary firefighter for only six weeks, after graduating from the academy in July.
