We would like to give a shout out to our very own firefighters that participated in the CNY Memorial Stair Climb in Utica yesterday Ed Davis, Steve Beck & Gabe Acquilla. Thank you for representing Pleasant Square VFC at this great memorial event.
The CNY Memorial Stair Climb is an annual event held in honor of the hundreds of first responders who died on Sept. 11, 2001. More than 420 firefighters, law enforcement officers and EMS personnel climb 110 flights of stairs – the same number of floors that were in the World Trade Center – in full turnout gear and uniforms.
Each of the climbers carry a tag bearing the name, photo and agency of one of the first responders who died on 9/11, and at the end of the climb they place the tag on a memory board.
