        On September 24, 2023, members of the East Greenbush Fire Company participated in the Tunnel to Towers 5K in NYC.
        The 5K retraces the final footsteps of FDNY firefighter Stephen Siller. Siller was just finishing his shift when he received word that a plane hit the North Tower; determined to carry out his duty, Siller drove to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, but it was closed to traffic for security purposes. Siller then strapped 60 lbs. of firefighting gear to his back and ran to the Twin Towers, where he lost his life working to save others.
        The East Greenbush Fire Company was proud to be present to not only support the wonderful work of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, but to challenge our members to maintain their physical fitness, show solidarity with our fellow first responders across the globe, and to pay our respects to those that have made the ultimate sacrifice as a result of 9/11.
