Hot Competition

The Tower Climb Benefit, a combined effort on Nov. 13 by firefighters from Clark County, North Las Vegas, Nellis Air Force Base, Henderson and Las Vegas, was a rousing success. With nearly 150 firefighters and emergency personnel participating, the fundraiser on behalf of the Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation was a friendly competition between local agencies. Each participant climbed the 108-floor, 1,455-step tower in the competition sponsored and hosted by the Stratosphere hotel-casino.
