On 9/9/17 Honey Brook Fire Company members traveled to Lancaster City to participate in the Lancaster stair Climb . The 9/11 Lancaster Memorial Stair Climb is a way for all firefighters to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live on 9-11-2001. Each participant pays tribute to an FDNY firefighter by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Individual tributes not only remembers the sacrifice of an FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Through firefighter and community participation, we can ensure that each of the 343 firefighters is honored and that the world knows that we will never forget.
The Stair Climb benefits the FDNY Counseling Services Unit, helps cover the costs for FDNY families to attend Memorial Weekend, and the programs provided by the NFFF to support the families of our nation’s fallen firefighters.This year over 15,000 was raised by the Lancaster stair climb.
