I will be at the Scott firefighter Stair Climb.
A quick clip about it:
At 788 feet of vertical elevation, the Bank of America Tower in downtown Seattle stands as the second tallest building west of the Mississippi. It takes 69 flights of stairs and 1,311 steps to reach the highly acclaimed observation deck overlooking the city.
In 2004, 837 firefighters from more than 130 departments successfully completed the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb, making this our largest competition to date. Thanks to the many participants, volunteers and corporate supporters for their continued support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
We climb these 69 floors in full turnouts, with airpacks, masked up, breathing air, just as we would if it was a real fire. Only here, there is no adrenalin, no anticipation of what the fire might be like when we get there, no victims to save.. Only the pain. And we do this on purpose folks! So look for the pin-up on Monday! Have a great weekend.
