2016 Scott World Firefighter Combat Challenge
This year's Challenge takes place on October 24-29 in downtown Montgomery. This is the 25th year of the competition and is suiting up to be the most intense action yet!
The Firefighter Combat Challenge seeks to encourage firefighter fitness and demonstrate the profession's rigors to the public. Wearing "full turnout gear," pairs of competitors race as they simulate the physical demands of real-life firefighting by performing a linked series of five tasks including climbing the five-story tower, hoisting, chopping, dragging hoses and rescuing a life-sized, 175-pound "victim" as they race against themselves, their opponents and the clock.
