Monarch Fire Fighters participate in 911 stair climb in Clayton for a good cause...
On Sunday September 13, 2015, Captain Coleman and a team of Monarch firefighter/paramedics participated in the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb by climbing the equivalent of 110 stories in the Pierre Laclede Tower II in Clayton, Missouri.
Wearing full gear, each team member honored a New York City firefighter who died in the World Trade Center terrorist attack. This fundraising event supports the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, which assists surviving families and co-workers of firefighters killed in the line of duty, including the 343 firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001.
