Cadets, and their instructors, all in full gear, climbed a little more than the equivalent of 110 stories, the number of floors in one of the towers of the world trade center.

The director of the training center says the stair climb is a way to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice and also to remind the cadets to remain vigilant.

"a lot of cadets we have here are in their early 20s and really not old enough to remember the events, watching on tv as they unfolded, but it's important we remind them of what can happen, we think about terrorist activity in large cities, new york, l.

A.

Dallas and those sorts of things, but a lot of the cells are forming up in smaller communities around our country, where there's not a lot of law enforcement."

The cadets have about six more weeks before graduation..

Everyday, thousands of emergency workers put their lives on the line.

On this day we stop to remember those who lost their lives 18 years ago, and recognize the men and women on the job today..

Our stephanie poole talks to some first responders about why they go to work every day.

We call them first responders... through late night and early morning shifts, they answer emergency calls preparing for the unknown... on september 11th, 2001 hundreds of police officers, firefighters, and emts worked tirelessly, responding to the terrorist attacks.

" i will never forget that day, i was in school at the time, i was in science class and we were able to watch it."

That very day inspired eric breazeale to become a firefighter.... he says he's grateful people are showing their appreciation for first responders.

" just want to say to each and everyone in this community that i appreciate them in this great country that we have and just not to give up.

I know that firefighters can be tough whenever you go through traumatic situations.

I juswant to tell each and everyone of them thank you."

No matter the circumstances, these men and women put themselves in situations because they want to help.

Bruce police officer and volunteer firefighter ,manuel mata, says he took this role simply because he loves his town.

" the community looks at us in the time of need and we're there to respond and if they need something along the way we're there to help them out.

It's a good sense of pride helping the community and being for our community cause we are such a close knit community between firefighters, ems, and police officers we all kind of work together, it's a good sense of pride."

Breazeale and mata agree...while the job can seem never-ending, it makes all the difference knowing you possibly saved a life.

And both men say they'll always acknowledge the devastating call their brothers and sisters responded to 18 years ago... " we'll keep remembering, and we'll take the watch from here.

" reporting in calhoun county, stephanie poole, wcbi news.

Mata and breazeale are committed to their career paths, and have no plans to retire any time soon..

Take vo off top the town of bruce takes time to recognize emergency personnel today..

The rotary club hosted a first responder luncheon..

" ross says the bruce rotary club plans to host the luncheon next year.

A unique observance today at the tupelo veteran's museum, where amateur radio operators used a technology dating back to the early 19th century to honor the victims of the terror attacks.

Wcbi's allie martin has more.

For hours on this patriot's day at the tupelo veterans museum nats members of the tupelo amateur radio club read through the list of names of those killed in the 9 11 terror attacks.

Nats as names are read, ham radio operators also transmit the victim's names over the airwaves, with morse code.

Nats this is the first time the radio club has used audio and morse code to remember the 9 11 victims. "it's one of the fundamental languages so to speak."

Allen sudduth is part of the group of radio operators, or "hams" who meet weekly at the veteran's museum.

He says it is an honor to be able to pay tribute to 9 11 victims. "and the thing about it is, so many people lost their lives in that one instance, and we don't need to forget the people who lost their lives there."

For sudduth, and countless others, the events of september 11 2001 are forever etched in their memories.

But some people, like tupelo resident ann byzet, have a personal connection to the victims. her cousin, leo russell keene the third, worked as a equities analyst for a financial firm.

He was stuck in an elevator when the south tower collapsed.

Byzet says the unique observance using ham radios helps ensure her cousin, and nearly 3 thousand others aren't forgotten.

"it means the world to me that they did this, it's such an honor for them to do it."

Nats radio talk ...never forget.

In tupelo, allie martin, wcbi news members of the tupelo amateur radio club hope to make the 9 11 observance an annual event..
