Whenever there’s a call for help our nation’s firefighters respond without hesitation. These heroes tread through smoke, soot and toxic fumes to save us from countless emergencies.
Every day, firefighters put their safety on the line. Sometimes, despite their best efforts to do everything right, firefighters die while serving their communities.
On Saturday, October 29, you can be a hero to the survivors of our fallen firefighters and to the firefighters that protect you. Take 2,220 steps with firefighters from around the country at the 2nd Annual National Stair Climb for Fallen Firefighters at Citi Field.
“Every day, here in New York City and across the country, firefighters go into harm’ s way, through every obstacle and climbing every step needed to accomplish their life-saving mission,” said FDNY Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. “The FDNY is proud to take part in this fitting tribute to every firefighter who has made the supreme sacrifice and to lend our support to the families they left behind.”
