SAN ANTONIO, TX (KXXV) -

Three Elm Mott Volunteer firefighters and a Hewitt firefighter participated in the San Antonio 110 9/11 Memorial Climb in San Antonio on Tuesday.

The event pays tribute to the climb that 343 fallen firefighters who lost their lives made on Sept. 11, 2001. In addition, the 70 law enforcement and nine EMS personnel who died 17 years ago are also honored.

Casey Perry and Lt. Kevin Cole and Brad Taylor from Elm Mott Fire and Casey Garcia from Hewitt Fire participated in the event.

They climbed the stairs at the Tower of the Americas twice to represent the 110 floors of the World Trade Center while wearing their firefighter gear and equipment.
