Our mission is to reduce the number of line of duty deaths and injuries directly related to firefighter health and wellness.
All Hands Working is a charitable organization that was founded by Joe Gordon with the help of Danny Watkins. Prior to being drafted as the 23rd overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft by the Philadelphia Eagles, Danny served as a volunteer firefighter in his hometown of West Kelowna, British Columbia. Joe Gordon is a career firefighter in Camden County, N.J. for IAFF Local 3249, and was a volunteer prior to his appointment. Danny and Joe formed a close bond of friendship and decided to do something to give back to the fire service. After noticing the amount of deaths and injuries firefighters were suffering a decision was made to form an organization that would prevent as many of these tragedies as possible. The birth of All Hands Working was a direct result of the bond firefighters have and the willingness to always give back to the fire service. All Hands Working exists to reverse the statistic that shows firefighters have a 300% greater risk of suffering a heart attack by doing their job. The injuries firefighters are suffering and the line of duty deaths that occur are overwhelmingly related to the health and wellness of the firefighter. All Hands Working strives to provide the training and resources to firefighters to prevent line of duty deaths and injuries. Firefighters are athletes and they need to be educated on health and wellness in the same way that an athlete would be trained to perform at a high level. Athletes train year round to play a sport that takes place at a predetermined time. Firefighters do not have the luxury of knowing when the game will take place but the amount of energy and stress placed on the body shares a direct correlation.
