McQueeney Firefighters Participate in the 2019 Tower Climb

On September 11, 2019, about 2000 first responders from all around Texas and the nation took part in the Seventh Annual San Antonio 110 9/11 Memorial Climb at the Tower of the Americas to honor the first responders who perished in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001. The participants climbed the tower, 64 flights, twice, exceeding the 110 flights at the World Trade Center. Each wore a tag bearing the name and picture of one of the firefighters who died in the attack. As they completed the climb, each participant rang a bell and read the name of the firefighter on the tag that they had worn. Seven McQueeney VFD volunteers participated in the climb: Chief Tim Bogisch, Assistant Chief Ray A. Salas, President Jawad Sheikh, Firefighters Joshua Harlow, Steven Talavera, Brandon Bogisch and Mike Wiedner.

  1. Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading
    correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

    • I’m not sure why you are having trouble. When I click open one, a slide show opens, and all images seem to come up. I’m new at this, so if you have any suggestions, please let me know! Thanks!
