Each year, Pierce invites fire departments from all over Wisconsin to participate in their annual 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb in Green Bay. The 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a way for firefighters and the community to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live.
Each participant pays tribute to a FDNY firefighter by climbing or walking the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center, which not only remembers the sacrifice of an FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Through firefighter and community participation we can ensure that each of the 343 firefighters is honored and that the world knows that we will never forget.
The proceeds of these events help the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation create and maintain programs that support fire service survivors. Your support of the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb events provides assistance to the surviving families and co-workers of the 343 firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001.
This event is open to anyone, not just firefighters! If you'd be interested in joining us and would like to be a part of our team, contact Captain Mabrey or a team member for details.
This will be the Lodi Area Fire Departments first year sending a team to this event, and we are excited to participate!
