Tomorrow, most of us will pause and reflect at some point on where we were ten years ago, what it means and think of those who were lost. For firefighters it will be a time to honor the 343 from FDNY who died trying to save others when our country was attacked. Paying tribute to those firefighters is the goal behind the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climbs we've been telling you about for quite some time.
We've shared with you the climbs that have occurred this year at FDIC, CFSI, Firehouse Expo (in the video below) and FRI. Tomorrow there will be climbs like this in dozens of locations across the country (and one in Canada). Firefighters, and in some cases the public, will be climbing the equivalent of 110 flights to represent the climb of the firefighters at the World Trade Center towers. There are still some climbs where the registration is open. Check out one near you and join in this experience. Or, just show up to support your fellow firefighters. The proceeds benefit the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
