    • What's New at LPFFA 972

      Two of our own LPFFA Members will be traveling to Seattle on March 6, to attend the 25th Annual Scott Firefighter Stairclimb.

      This event is a 69 story climb up the Columbia Center in Downtown Seattle. The climb is done in full firefighting gear and breathing off of an air pack. This grueling task is done to help raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

      The following two links are ways you can help support these guys with such an amazing cause!
