On March 16th, Food on the Stove hosted the Lt. Kevin McRae Gym Dedication Fundraiser @ (Old) Engine Company 12. On May 6, 2019, Food on the Stove, will be dedicating a brand-new state of the art gym to the late Lieutenant Kevin McRae. The event and remodel will take place at the quarters of Engine 6 located on 1300 New Jersey Ave NW Washington DC; 4 years to the day that Lt. McRae tragically died while fighting a fire in a high-rise apartment building at 1330 7th Street NW. McRae was a 26 year veteran with the DC Fire and EMS Department where he ascended to the rank of Lieutenant after starting his career as a cadet fresh out of high school. Unfortunately, McRae was killed by the #1 killer of all firefighters, heart disease. Food on the Stove recently released a documentary on heart disease in the fire service with a focus on Lt. McRae and the tragic incident that claimed his life. We hope this documentary will bring awareness to this epidemic.
