More than 100 firefighters from across North Dakota gathered in Bismarck today to climb the stairs of the State Capitol.
It’s to remember those who lost their lives in the 9-11 attacks in 2001.
The firefighters gathered at the Capitol steps for a short ceremony. They then went inside, and in groups of six climbed the inside steps.
“So the event will involve people starting at the steps, at the bottom,” said Mandan firefighter Andrew Beck. “They’ll walk up 17 floors, take the elevator down, and because we need to get to 110, they will do that six times.”
