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.

Why We Search
To not search would a dereliction of duty. In Lorain, Ohio, like many other cities, we've had fatalities in abandoned buildings and homes. Companies have pulled homeless individuals off balconies and out of windows. Firefighting is inherently a dangerous job. If you don't like that fact, do something else. If you're not going to search…
