Baton Rouge, La — In honor of the fallen firefighters that died during the 9/11 tragedy, there will be a memorial stair climb on Saturday, September 8, at the Governmental Building located at 222 St. Louis Street in downtown Baton Rouge.
The idea behind this is for firefighters from around the area to finish the 110 story climb that New York firefighters started on this tragic day.
Firefighters will first participate in the Memorial Service at the U.S.S. Kidd at 8:30 a.m. From there, they will make their way to the Governmental Building to begin their climb.
Each participant will wear the name of a firefighter that was killed in the towers on that tragic day.
The public is invited to come view the ceremony and support the firefighters.
