Description

Charlotte Fire Fighters 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb

The Charlotte Fire Fighters’ Association is proud and humbled to host a 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb to honor those that gave all on the morning of September 11, 2001, their families and to benefit the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.

The Charlotte Fire Fighters 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb will take place on Sunday September 11, 2011 at the Duke Energy Center Building in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. Participants of the climb will consist of 343 firefighters, 60 law enforcement personnel and 10 EMS personnel. The makeup and numbers of climbers are selected to represent the first responders lost during the 9-11-01 terrorist attacks. Public safety participants will climb a total of 110 floors, the number equal to the height of each Twin Tower.

On the morning of September 11th fire service members convene in high-rise buildings across the United States to climb 110 stories as a tribute to their fallen brothers. Some use air pack or carry hoses; many are in full turn-out gear; others are accompanied by rescue dogs. Each climber carries the photograph and biographical sketch of a firefighter who was lost on September 11, 2001.

The Charlotte Fire Fighters 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb is modified to enable law enforcement and EMS personnel to also participate in numbers to represent those lost from each profession. The 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb is not a race, but an opportunity to honor and remember the 343 FDNY, 60 law enforcement and 10 EMS members who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live.
