CFD Memorial Workout
-Brian Clark

The smell of smoke loomed heavy as Engine 72,Engine 126, Tower Ladder 34, Truck 49 and Battalion 23 were dispatched on the cold morning of December 22, 2010 at 06:48. 1744 E. 75th street was a blaze, and when the first companies arrived on the scene they found a small fire in a abandoned building. Without hesitation, all companies went to work extinguishing the fire and searching out victims. The fire was quickly contained.

At 07:07 during routine overhaul operations the building suddenly collapsed trapping multiple Firefighters. A mayday was called and the scene quickly turned chaotic as all available firefighters started searching the rubble for their trapped brothers. In all 14 firefighters were injured and two died in the line of duty: Edward Stringer, a 12-year veteran, and Cory Ankum, a member of the department for two years died.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Ankum was a former Chicago cop who joined the Chicago Fire Department’s Engine 72 a year ago and was described as a favorite at the firehouse at 79th and South Chicago.The father of three children under 12 years old including a 1 year old.
Stringer had 2 grown children and lived alone. He was the best neighbor we’ve ever had in the 50 years we’re living here,” said an elderly woman who lived down the block from his brick Cape Cod home on the West Side.

  2. Hey CFO peeps! I just wanted to give everyone a heads up and let you know that we are hosting our Annual New Year's Eve Bash again this year. This will be our 4th year in a row doing this now and as always, you are all invited. There will be more details on the blog next week so be on the look out.

    This year the party is being held at the Bacardi Ballroom in the Holiday Inn-Downtown. In past years we have had a wonderful turnout and great representation from the gym so let me or Stacie know if you are interested.

    Hope you all have a Merry Christmas! And good luck with this workout, it's a tough one.

  6. Nothing like a hero WOD for a little extra motivation. Tackled this one with Doug and Dave P. (Jon coined us 3-D for the day) and finished in 19:10. Pretty sure I did more wall balls this week than the last two months combined!

    Everyone have a merry Christmas!
