On Saturday, Carpinteria Summerland firefighters participated in the 2020 Leukemia Lymphoma Society Firefighter Stairclimb.

This year the annual event was held virtually due to the pandemic.

Firefighters climbed 69 stories while in full gear and on air packs.

The department says they have raised thousands of dollars for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society as part of this yearly event, with nearly $3 million raised by various departments Saturday.
