This is the inaugural Firefighter Stair Climb for the Bay Area. Combining Firefighters inherent giving nature with their competitive spirit is a winning combination. We are pleased to be raising funds for some great causes during this event. Firefighters are on the front lines of devastating burn injuries that befall people at critical times. We have selected 3 causes that work together in treatment and recovery of major burned victims.
Bothin Burn Center
Firefighters will be participating in full Firefighter Gear (Bunker Gear) with donned SCBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) and breathing air
We are proud to offer our brothers in law enforcement and the military an opportunity to climb with Firefighters for some great causes. Officers of the law are welcome to participate in this charity stair climb and are allowed to carry gear that is commensurate to their respective careers.
Examples of police or military gear may include ordinary uniform, SWAT, Riot or Tactical gear. Officers and troops will be allowed to carry weapons on the climb. There will be no live ammunition allowed inside the building. We are working with respective departments to ensure proper procedures to ensure weapons clear.
We encourage participating departments to involve their fire arms instructor or Training Officer to contact us for integration of procedures prior to start of climb.
The Trans American Pyramid is an amazing facility. This is an especially unique chance for us to climb one of the most secured buildings in San Francisco.
There is space available for departments to bring equipment for display also. We are arranging parking space such vehicles as SWAT apparatus or command units.
Please contact Gary Allender if you have any questions.
