National Fallen Firefighter's Foundation Stair Climb
Saturday, October 23, 2021
Today members of our department participated in the National Fallen Firefighter's Foundation Stair Climb at the Pyramid Condominium in Ocean City. They climbed 110 floors in full turn-out gear and SCBA, just like our fallen Brothers and Sisters from FDNY did on 9/11/01. Most didn't make it to the top, so they carry them with up. Every firefighter killed on 9/11 has a name badge and they make sure they all go all the way to the top and read off each of their names and ring the bell in memory of their ultimate sacrifice.
Please consider a donation to the NFFF to help their families and the families of other fallen firefighters whose loved ones never came home. Thank you for your support!
The PCVFC is proud to have members who support this event each year. #pocofire
