September 12, 2019
Southern Stone County firefighters participated in the 7th annual Springfield Area Memorial Stairclimb on Saturday, September 7. These 14 Stone County firefighters joined over 300 other people, representing five states, in remembering the 343 firefighters who lost their lives during the September 11, 2001, World Trade Center attacks.
Participants included firefighters from across the region, other first responder groups, such as EMS and police departments, as well as the military. Participants raised money for the National Fallen Firefighters (NFFF) Foundation. The foundation provides assistance to the families of the firefighters lost in 9/11 and their coworkers. The Stone County team, led by Lt. Dylan Honea, raised over $3,700 this year, with all of those funds going directly to NFFF.
