Full Coverage: Firehouse Expo 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb

As you know, Willie Wines Jr., Kevin Totten, and I climbed 110 stories as a part of the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at Firehouse Expo. We climbed with 320 others, some of whom we knew already and others who we met for the first time.

The event was a huge success. All I can really say is that you have to participate in one to really understand.

Below is more coverage and video of the event.

Here is a view from several of us who climbed in it

Here is some local news coverage

When you can climb and how to sign up

If you are interested in participating in a 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb all you have to do is find one near you. Willie Wines Jr. and I are planning on doing the stair climb in Atlanta during Fire Rescue International and either the climb in Richmond, VA on Sept. 11th or the one in Greenbelt, MD on Sept. 11th. We have not signed up for any of them, but once we clear our schedules we plan on signing up!

One other thing I have to mention is the Better Angels display. This memorial is awesome. There is a short video here.
