Feel Like Taking The Stairs?

Put all that ‘brotherhood’ and ‘never forget’ talk where your feet are.


The people behind the scenes of the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climbs are looking for you to take the stairs at Firehouse Expo.

On Thursday, 21 July from 2:00 to 4:00, 343 participants will “walk for the 343″ at the Baltimore Hilton.

The rub is, they need roughly 200 more participants to make the “343″.

If Rhett and Willie can do it, well then, you have no excuse. I won’t try and guilt-trip you into it. I won’t mention that the benefit you’ll feel afterward will be far better than any sticker or t-shirt. I won’t tell you that you’d look a lot better being seen doing the stair climb instead of being seen trying to shove some deep fried meal down your gullet and sucking on a extra large diet soda.

But I will tell you that it would be pretty lame for them to not have 343 participants.

If you feel led, sign up. If not, find someone who might want to and encourage them.

Dave i agree with your whole post. However the one thing I'm not experiencing or seeing is the over safetyifcation. While i hear words spoke about being safe when possible, but not sacrificing service for safety. If anything, i see firefighters more aggressive than when i started many years back due to the increased protection…

Well done. You make some awesome points. In regards to the "numbers".....(and kind of backing up your thought of changing tactics), we have often wondered why there is so much emphasis on RIT and the RIT/Industrial complex. I'm on Chicago and have worked in the Chicago Suburbs for almost 20 years. We've seen the advent…

“Over safetyification”... Dave, that is the best description of what those who want to prevent us from doing the job want to do to the job.
