Bishop Fire and Public Honor Fallen Firefighters In 9-11 Memorial 'Stair Climb'

Bishop Firefighters in full gear, and members of the public, climb the Bishop Fairgrounds stadium steps 55 times up and down during the Sept. 11 20th anniversary memorial local 'Stair Climb' event Saturday night. The climb was organized by Bishop Fire Chief Joe Dell and for the first time since Bishop Fire has done the event, members of the public joined the firefighters on the hot summer night, with as many as 250 participating. The funds raised will go to benefit the Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
