“Last year’s event was a great success and we are planning a bigger and better event this year,” said Firefighter Allen Clark who is coordinating the event.

“It’s our way of remembering and honoring those who died and symbolically finishing the journey.”

Police officers and citizens also will make the climb, as they did last year to pay tribute to the lives lost in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 by climbing the full length of stairs 11 times.
