Denver 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb
The 2014 Denver 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb was held at the Century Link Building in downtown Denver on September 11th. 2014. Hundreds of Firefighters from 51 departments and 10 states, climbed the 55 story building twice in full turnout gear, carrying a piece of equipment used for high-rise fires. The primary purpose of the Memorial Stair Climb, which began in 2005, is to remember the 343 New York City firefighters who lost their lives at the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001. In addition, those Firefighter’s who participated in this event demonstrated their commitment to the physical and mental preparation necessary to protect others from harm. The annual event is hosted by the Denver Fire Department and Castle Rock Fire Rescue.
