Memorial Stair Climb to honour 9/11 firefighters

Lethbridge firefighters are gearing up for the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb which will take place on September 24th at the Melcor Centre.

The goal is to ascend and descend 110 stories which is the equivalent of the height of the World Trade Centre before it came crashing down, following the terrorist attacks 22 years ago.

“One of our opportunities that we are given is to do a firefighter stair climb that replicates the 9/11 some- how far some of those firefighters in New York climbed. We replicate the same kind of process. We’ll wear a lanyard around our neck with one of the firefighters that day out of 343 New York City firefighters that gave their lives that day to kind of remember them, sacrifice them. And it’s another great way to raise some money for our charities as well,” says Patrick Misura, captain with Lethbridge Fire & Emergency Services.
