Local firefighters take part in 9/11 memorial climb

(Continued)

MT. VERNON — —

Climb participants are grouped into teams of seven. Each team climbs the William R. Snodgrass Tennessee Tower four times to complete the 110 stories.

It drives home the fact that not only did they have to climb those 110 stories, but they had to do rescues and they had to fight fire and they had to do a lot of stuff after that,” Mueller said.

To Zimmer, the importance of the climb can be summed up in one simple phrase – “we climb because they can't.”

I think it's just nice to see all of us get together and commemorate what those guys did for us,” Zimmer said.
