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.

Last year was a fantastic second year for Bozeman Fire and its members coming in 36th out of 200 teams. We also had two fire fighters place in the top 100 out of 1,500 participants, 2 in the top 400 and 1 in the top 500. that means we all finished in the top 1/3 of the event. We also raised $3,375.00 for the Leukemia Society as we climbed in honor and great support of a Bozeman Firefighters son who has battled leukemia at such a young age of 14. Thanks again for the past support, we hope your with us again this year.
