Pro-Tech 8 NVFC Relay Now Open to All NVFC Members

Pro-Tech 8 NVFC Relay Now Open to All NVFC Members

Monday, 06 August 2012

Looking for a chance to improve your fitness, test your stamina, and show off your firefighting skills? The Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge® is taking place in cities all across the country this summer, and National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) members can participate for free.

Pro-Tech 8 has partnered with the NVFC and the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge to offer the Pro-Tech 8 NVFC Relay at all Challenge events this year. Pro-Tech 8 will sponsor the registration fees for the first six NVFC teams to register for each event. Teams consist of three to five members, and at least three members of your team must be NVFC members to be eligible. If you are not currently an NVFC member, join today at www.nvfc.org to take advantage of this benefit.

The Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge seeks to encourage firefighter fitness and demonstrate the profession's rigors to the public. Wearing "full bunker gear" and the Scott 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 five-story tower, hoisting, chopping, dragging hoses, and rescuing a life-sized, 175 lb. "victim" as they race against themselves, their opponent, and the clock.

This is a great way to motivate yourself and fellow department members to focus on fitness while training for this rigorous event.

Upcoming Challenge events include:

  • Lexington, KY – August 11-12
  • Charleston, WV – August 17- 18
  • Hawarden, IA – August 31-September 1
  • Freeport, ME – September 7
  • Oak Forest, IL – September 15-16
  • Las Vegas, NV – October 5-6
  • Tyler, TX – October 12-13

Register your team today to secure your spot in the Pro-Tech 8 NVFC Relay! Learn more at www.nvfc.org/resources/healthsafety/pro-tech-8-nvfc-relay-challenge.
