Fairfield Firefighter/Paramedic Lorin Adams recently returned home with a silver medal that he earned in San Diego at the Firehouse World Fitness Throwdown.
The competition consisted of 100 firefighters who came from 35 different states on an invitation-only basis and took place over a two-day period. The cross fit style event tested cardiovascular fitness, strength and the ability to adapt to a variety of strenuous tests.
Adams has been a member of a local cross fit gym and has recruited several Fairfield firefighters into the sport.
