Paul Davis Restoration: Help Us Honor Fallen Heroes at the Fayetteville, NC 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb

The Fayetteville 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a way to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters, police, and EMS who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live on 9-11-2001. Each participant pays tribute to an FDNY firefighter, police officer, or EMS member by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Your individual tribute not only remembers the sacrifice of an FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Through firefighter and community participation we can ensure that each of the 343 firefighters, 60 police officers, and 10 EMS workers are honored and that the world knows that we will never forget.

The Stair Climbs fund the programs provided by the NFFF to support the families of your local fallen firefighters and the FDNY Counseling Services Unit.

Paul Davis of the Sandhills is proud to have a team of employees and their families participating in this event, and will have bottled water on hand for other participants.
