Volunteer fire departments and fire rescue in Lancaster County honored those who died in the 9/11 attacks by participating in the Memorial Stair Climb in Charlotte on Saturday.
A team from Lancaster County participates every year. This year’s team was named the “Sleepless Nights.”
The event is held in honor of the 343 FDNY firefighters who died in 9/11. It also raises money for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The donations help the families and co-workers of the fallen firefighters.
A photo of a firefighter who died in 9/11 was given to the firefighters who participated in the climb.
People can donate year-round to the National Firefighters Foundation. To learn more about the climb and how to donate, click here.
