For the sixth year in a row, a group of Bozeman firefighters is training and fundraising to participate in a punishing stairclimb competition that raises money for a good cause.
The 25th annual Scott Firefighter Stairclimb takes place in the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle on March 6.
We often hear the firefighters quote "my mind will never forget what my eyes have seen" and this remains true for all firefighters including Bozeman's.
As much as we see daily we find ourselves unknowingly relying on our fire family for comfort, then at home we look to our loved ones for the same.
This weeks fire was no different.

Bozeman Fire participates in first annual national night out
Updated On: Aug 06, 2011
BOZEMAN, Mont. -- The rain might have put a damper on the evening but for those who turned out for Bozeman's National Night Out, there was certainly plenty to do and learn.
"I think it's great you can get all the different entities out here and demonstrate what they are, what they do, how they serve the community and how everything comes together," says attendee, Richard Dortch.
From the Gallatin Valley Sheriff's Department and their Search and Rescue team to the Gallatin National Forest, representatives were there to provide information and safety tips.
"We can teach people some of the good things they can do to protect their very own national forest," says the Gallatin National Forest's Marianne Baumberger. Of course, the event would not be complete without a visit from one of kids' favorite safety mascots. "We met Smokey the Bear," says attendee, Kennedy Dortch.
Adults and teens, like Amy Poole, were able to browse through a number of resources regarding home, internet and personal safety. "The self-defense table...I got to kick a lot of stuff," says Poole.
Perhaps, the highlight of the evening was the Bozeman Fire Department's demonstration."The demonstration was using some of the tools the fire department has, either the Bozeman Fire Department or some of the rural fire departments, to be able to extricate somebody out of a vehicle that's either damaged or can't move," explains Bozeman Police Department's Sgt. Travis Munter.
It was such a hit the first time, they did a second demonstration with a different volunteer. As nerve racking as it may have been, the team certainly showed the people of Bozeman they have what it takes to get the job done.
