Climbing Stairs for a Good Cause
Posted Date: 7/25/2018

80 floors

Coral Gables Firefighter-Engineer Carlos Eguiluz and Firefighter Samantha Putz put their skills to the test at the fourth annual New York City Memorial Stair Climb.

Both firefighters climbed the 80 floors of the third World Trade Center Tower in honor of the 343 New York firefighters who were killed on the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. Eguiluz and Putz completed the task wearing their full gear and air tanks, which added 80 pounds of weight to their 80-story climb.

Firefighter Putz finished among the top 10 competing females, completing the climb in just 38 minutes.
