Earlier this week we took part in a memorial at Red Rocks Amphitheater to remember those who rushed in towards danger 17 years ago. The Red Rocks Memorial Stair Climb is one of the largest memorial events of its kind in the country, bringing firefighters and the public together to remember the 343 Fire Department of New York personnel who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. Over 2,300 participants marched nine laps around the amphitheater, equalling the number of steps in the 110 stories of the World Trade Center in New York City.
The climb benefits the FDNY Counseling Services Unit and the programs provided by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to support their families.
The Honor Bell tolled for the first responders who perished in the terrorist attacks on 9/11. The belladier for Tuesday's tolling was Brad Harmon, USAF (ret) who serves as a Paramedic and Firefighter with West Metro Fire Department.
