How to prepare for the NFFF 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb
This video outlines some simple steps you can take to prepare your body for the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb in your community. Follow these suggestions and you'll be better prepared to complete the climb, and recover faster in the days following. This exercise program should be started as soon as possible before a climb, ideally no less than 30 days prior to the event.
If you have any known health problems or exercise limitations, please consult with your physician prior to starting this, or any exercise program. Although the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb is not a race, it is a strenuous activity and any step you can take to better prepare will pay off in the long run.
Building the NFFF 2 1/2" High Rise Hose Pack
This video will demonstrate the proper method to build a 2 1/2" High Rise Hose Pack using light weight hose. This hose pack is the preferred method for use during the NFFF 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb. You will need 4 sections of 2 1/2" hose, 50' each. Other items needed are a 2 1/2" nozzle, a 2 1/2" to 1 3/4" gated wye, and several small hose straps (we use 3 on each hose) to secure the bundles.
