Since 1991 Fire Departments have been competing in the Scott Safety Firefighter Combat Challenge to raise awareness to the public of how challenging and demanding it is to be a firefighter.
The roots of this Challenge start in D.C. were teams made up of 5 different Departments competed against each other in 5 different events. Not only were these challenges tough but they went head to head in front of spectators and even television cameras! After seeing the reaction of the public this challenge took off and has been taking place annually, adding more teams from different cities and even more events. ESPN covered the event but now you can catch it on Versus.
The festivites begin on March 24th this year so be sure to check it out and cheer your local heroes on as they compete against each other!
