The first responders climbed the stairs in the Tower of the Americas in Hemisfair Plaza in San Antonio in full rescue gear twice, a height equal to 110 floors and exceeding the height of the Twin Towers that were destroyed in the attacks. Each participant carried a tag bearing the name of a firefighter who perished that day. Members from McQueeney included Chief Michael Wiedner, Assistant Chief Ray Salas, Firefighter/EMT Brant Wilhoit and Lt./EMT Jonathan Dominguez.
