  3. Yesterday I climbed the 110 stories with my friend’s fire department for the 9/11 Stairclimb at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison CO. In the days leading up to the climb I was very nervous that I wouldn’t make the whole climb but as soon as I clipped Paul’s picture on my shirt I knew I would have to finish for him no matter what. It was a honor to climb in remembrance of all of the fallen but it was especially touching to have him with me. Each start of another uphill climb I would touch his picture to help keep me going. Thank you for your sacrifice sir. God bless you and your family.

  4. I attended the 9/11 Stair Climb at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI. I had the honor of climbing in memory of Firefighter Paul M. Beyer. I climbed all 110 stories, and as the last steps became more challenging I glanced down at the photo of Paul which gave me the last push to complete the climb. God bless his family and brothers of the FDNY.

I have done a lot research on Paul and he sounds like a good man. I will never forget Paul and I will be always connected to Paul in a way.

  7. I ordered a copper bracelet right after 9/11 from a fund raiser for the families. Paul’s name was on the bracelet that I received. When I went to Iraq in 2004 (Army, Ft. Bragg, NC) I wore that bracelet everyday, even out on missions. The night before I came home to the United States, I buried that bracelet at my camp in Iraq. I hope to visit Engine 6 house one day.

  9. Paul was a proby under me when I was a Lieutenant in Engine 6. A quiet young man who you could always count on. Paul never a bad word to say about anyone and had a great way of showing us a better way of doing things. He would have been a rising star in the Department. I truly wish I would have had more time to work along side him.
    He will forever be in my mind.

  10. I grew up with Paul we became great friends after high school. He was always the nicest and most helpful person I ever met. He was a great Mechanic He would never hesitate to help any of us out with the old crappy car we drove. He loved his family and was a great dad. He had a great sense of humor and was as tough as nails. He was a complete person. You will always be missed.

    I work at Lambton College in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada.
    Today, to mark the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and to honour the fallen firefighters, I was given the privilege of climbing 2,200 stairs in memory of Paul. “We Will Never Forget” is not just a hashtag. I will forever carry Paul’s photo with me.

  16. I climbed 110 flights on September 9th, 2023 in honor of firefighter Paul Beyer of engine 6 at the Epic Center in Wichita Kansas. It was difficult but also very rewarding and powerful. The pictures on the walls of the stairwell and the radio traffic was very motivating. I had a great experience and hope to do the climb again. I will pray for Paul and his family.
