Bishop Fire Department firefighters in full gear, and members of the public, climb the equivalent of 110 flights of stairs (or 2071 steps) at the Sept. 11 20th anniversary memorial 'stair climb' at the Bishop Fairgrounds this weekend. Between 200-250 local people participated in the event, with each person carrying with them a card with the name of one of the 343 firefighters who died on Sept. 11, 2001 as they climbed up and down the stadium steps 55 times in the 92-degree heat.
