Active firefighters came together this morning to honor those who lost their lives 20 years ago on September 11, 2001, with a climb up 1,455 steps to the top of The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod’s 1,149-foot tower.
Climbing in full gear, each participant wore a lanyard with a photo of a fallen firefighter to represent the heroes whose lives were lost. First responders from across the Las Vegas Valley participated in the climb, including Las Vegas Fire & Rescue Fire Captain Anthony Clinker, Fire Engineer Chad Paddock and firefighter and paramedic, Michael McFate, among others.
Following the climb, participants, plus family and friends, were invited to raise a glass at PT’s Wings & Sports in memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice 20 years ago.
Free self-parking and valet are always available at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod, and more information is available at TheSTRAT.com.
