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.

Thank you for taking the time to write this article. It's wonderful to know others share the same compassion for animals.

Thank you John. I believe that part of the problem(s) is that some don't know how to pare down the material to what works for them. Another is that some believe that if XYZ worked for them is must and have to work for you, no exceptions. Finally, yes, I did get permission. Bill

Hey Bill, good article. I've been building and selling flashover units since 2000. I've been preaching and practising flow path control since then. My first blitz attack (reset) was on a two storey house with flames out the 2nd storey window, back in 1996. We were first-in, as a 3 man crew on a ladder…

Thanks for sharing your story. We bring our dogs to our office every day... What a fighter that doggy was.

I got word last night that the dog crossed the rainbow bridge yesterday afternoon.
