DALLAS–Firefighters from Eustace got to participate in a very special Patriot’s Day memorial event Saturday held just for First Responders.
The Dallas 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb is limited to just 343 firefighters, 70 law enforcement officers and nine EMTs, the very number of those who climbed the World Trade Center Towers and did not return.
Each wore full bunker gear and went up 110 flights at the Renaissance Tower in Dallas.
Each participant wore around his or her neck a photo badge of one of those 9-11 heroes who lost their lives in the line of duty and after returning to the ground floor, placed a metal pin in a memorial board, honoring that fallen comrade by name.
“It was very touching, all of it,” Eustace Fire Captain Cade Anthony said.
More photos from this event can be found in the September 11, 2014 issue of The Monitor.
