NVFC teams can register now to participate in Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge

Take the Pro-Tech 8 NVFC Relay Challenge this summer! Pro-Tech 8 is paying for up to six National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) teams to compete in each Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge (SFCC) event this year. Three members of the five-member teams must be NVFC members as of December 31, 2011.

“The SFCC and the NVFC want to help train firefighters in fitness skills needed to perform their jobs and motivate these responders to develop a life-long commitment to fitness, health, and wellness,” said NVFC Chairman Philip C. Stittleburg. “We are pleased to partner with the SFCC to provide the Pro-Tech 8 NVFC Relay Challenge, and grateful to Pro-Tech 8 for sponsoring NVFC teams so that these volunteer firefighters are able to participate.”

“As a long-time supporter of the SFCC, Pro-Tech 8 is excited to be teaming up with the NVFC to offer this Relay for the volunteer firefighters throughout the U.S.,” said Allan Bart, Vice President of TechTrade LLC.

Pro-Tech 8 will pay for the registration fees of the first six NVFC teams to register for each Challenge event. Additional NVFC teams can compete in the Relay but will need to pay their own registration fees.

Pro-Tech 8 NVFC Relay teams will compete against each other in the Pro-Tech 8 NVFC Relay sub-category. Awards for this category will be given to the first and second place team winners. Winning teams that achieve a qualifying race time will also advance into the final rounds of the general Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge categories and be eligible to win awards in these categories as well.
