Scott Firefighter Stair Climb - Sandpoint Blog

On my Thursday radio show I interviewed Clint from the Sandpoint Fire Department talked about their participation in the Scott Firefighter Stair Climb in Seattle. Clint related how the competitors climb an equivalent of 69 floors with gear weighing 65 pounds. Having placed well in the previous contest the hopes are to have all in our group of fine men be in the top 100 out of 1,500. The firefighters participating this year are Britian Whitley, Casey O'Donnell, Allo Pucci, and Clint Frank.


At 788 feet of vertical elevation, the Columbia Center (formerly Bank of America Tower) in downtown Seattle stands as the second tallest building west of the Mississippi. It takes 69 flights of stairs and 1,311 steps to reach the highly acclaimed observation deck overlooking the city.

The Scott Firefighter Stairclimb supports the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, raising money through sponsorships, individual and department fundraising, and entry fees. In 2010, the event featured over 1,500 firefighters from 247 different departments and brought in a record $780,000 for blood-cancer research and patient services.

It takes place on March 6th and the goal of our team is to raise $1,000 for the society. You can make a donation locally by visiting The guys were out on a stair stepper at our local Safeway from 3 - 7pm last Friday in full gear.

My sweetest gal O'Hally who has stuck with me through incredibly hard times is a firefighter for the Northside Fire Department next to Sandpoint. I donated their simple website. Click the link to visit.
