    On September 11, 2001, police, firefighters and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) were climbing up the World Trade Center and Pentagon stairs while everyone else was climbing down. They were doing what they were trained to do. These emergency workers were thinking about the people who relied on them to lead them to safety.
