First responders in North Texas climbed Dallas’ Renaissance Tower twice, for a total of 110 stories Saturday morning.
They wore their protective gear to honor the sacrifices of 343 FDNY firefighters, 70 law enforcement officers and 9 EMTs who died on 9/11.
Each climber wore a badge with a biography and a name of firefighter who was killed.
Another climb will take place Sunday at the tallest building in Fort Worth. Civilians are invited to join veterans, firefighters, police officers and first responders from across the U.S.
The event benefits Sons of the Flag, Parkland Foundation, Stay the Course Veterans Services and the Lt. Todd Wesley Krodle Memorial Foundation, in support of Dallas Fire Fighters and their families.
The event honors retired DFNY firefighter, Jeff Cool who worked for months at the September 11th site, in the aftermath of the attacks.
