Medicine Park firefighter remembers 9/11 victim

A Medicine Park Volunteer Firefighter — too young to remember the events of Sept. 11, 2001 — climbed 110 stories of steps Saturday in dedication to the 343 firefighters who died on that day 17 years ago.

Less than a year after joining the fi re department, Emily Cope learned of the Oklahoma 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb — an annual event dedicated to preserving the memory of every firefighter who died trying to rescue people from the World Trade Center towers. The young member saw an opportunity to not only give back, but to do her part in carrying on that legacy.
