The Firefighter Championships are a great way to develop skills and team work. They are also a great way to meet fellow firefighters and share knowledge and skills.

Bring along a team of four from your station or agency for an enjoyable weekend. If you can’t get a team of four from your station or agency contact a station near you or just come along and you will be placed into a team. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t competed before new teams are paired up with a mentor team who will show you how the events are run.

All teams competing are provided with breakfast and lunch on the Saturday along with dinner at the official function Saturday night, breakfast is also provided Sunday morning.

Come along, have a go, meet fellow Firefighters and have a great time!
