2019 Scott World Firefighter Combat Challenge
The 2019 Scott World Firefighter Combat Challenge will be held in Montgomery, AL on October 21-26, 2019. Don't miss this exciting challenge that simulates the physical demands of real-life firefighting and includes climbing a 5-story tower, hoisting, chopping, dragging hose, and rescuing a life-sized victim, all while wearing full gear.
The Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge® has been seen on ESPN for many years and has aptly been described as the "toughest two minutes in sports."
Every year, the Challenge attracts hundreds of firefighters from across the world, including Kuwait, New Zealand, Germany, Argentina, Chile, South Africa, and Canada, as well as the U.S.
The Challenge seeks to encourage firefighter fitness and demonstrate the profession's rigors to the public. Wearing "full bunker gear" and the Scott 5.5 Air-Pak X3 SCBA, 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."
