LOWVILLE — Donning an air pack and climbing the equivalent of 32 flights of stairs, a New Bremen man got a taste of what it is like to be a firefighter as he participated in the Lewis County 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb Saturday.

For the second year, Benjamin J. Lyndaker, vice president of the Lowville Fire Department board, organized the event in remembrance of 9/11 and to honor the 343 firefighters who lost their lives in the World Trade Center.
