As part of a commemoration of the 9/11 terrorist attacks tomorrow, firefighters in Montgomery County will climb 110 stories -- the height of the twin towers.
The challenge for firefighters was finding a location for such an exercise, as there isn't a building tall enough in Montgomery County.
Instead, they'll make four and a half trips up and down the North Bethesda Market building on Rockville Pike. Organizer T.J. Monahan says they'll remember 9/11 first responders to give a sense of how difficult it is to fight fires in skyscrapers.
"How much tax that would put on our bodies," Monahan says. "And when we finally did get up to the fire then we'd have to actually do our work."
The event will raise money for the Burn Foundation.
