Firefighters with the Artesia Fire Department took to the stairs at Bulldog Bowl Friday to honor and remember the 343 firefighters killed attempting to save the lives of others in New York on 9/11. Fire departments around the nation pay tribute to their fallen brothers and sisters by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center on the anniversary of the tragedy.
