Combat Challenge – 2015 World’s

We are so proud of our West Licking Firefighter’s who recently participated in the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge World Finals held in Montgomery Alabama and did so well!!  Way to go!!

The Challenge seeks to encourage firefighter fitness and demonstrate the profession’s rigors to the public. The course is completed with the firefighters wearing “full bunker gear” and the Scott 5.5 Air-Pak breathing apparatus.   Pairs of competitors race head-to-head as they simulate the physical demands of real-life firefighting by performing a linked series of five tasks including climbing the 5-story tower, hoisting, chopping, dragging hoses and rescuing a life-sized, 175 lb. “victim” as they race against themselves, their opponent and the clock.
