Stair climb

Wellington North Fire Services travelled to Hamilton on Feb. 3 to compete in the Steeltown Stair Climb organized by the Lung Association of Ontario and Kitchener fire department. This year was an emotional event, with one of Kitchener’s members watching the live stream while he recovers from a lung transplant, said officials. The five-member Wellington North team completed 533 steps (26 commercial storeys), a total of 338 feet, in full bunker gear. The team was able to collectively raise $1,390 for the cause. Maynard Weber finished second in the under 30 category and took home second place overall with a time of 4:43. “A big thanks to all of you for what you do; not only responding to emergencies to save lives but responding to the Lung Association to save lives,” said Fire Chief Dave Guilbault. The Wellington North team members (with their times), from left, are: Ken Smith (7:35), Brendan Gorecki (5:27), Weber (4:43), Dustin Piccinetti (5:49) and Brendan Carroll (5:21).  Submitted photo
