The Firefighter Combat Challenge
Close_Up_LR

What is the Firefighter Combat Challenge?
The Challenge annually attracts hundreds of U.S. and Canadian municipal fire departments at more than 25 locations and is now expanding to countries around the world, including New Zealand, Germany, Argentina, Chile, and South Africa. The 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 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.

History:
The Challenge was born the day that Chief David Gratz, Director of Fire/Rescue Services, Montgomery County, MD, walked into the Human Performance Laboratory at the Sports Medicine Center of the University of Maryland in July, 1974. Present to greet him were Drs. Dotson, Santa Maria and Davis. Chief Gratz’s interest was immediate – he needed a validated test. The mission: develop a physical ability test to determine whether a job applicant had the requisite capabilities to perform the essential job functions of a firefighter.

With US Fire Administration funding, the research design was laid out. It required the cooperation of fire departments in seven Washington, DC, political jurisdictions, each providing a representative sample of firefighters proportionate to its relative size. Ultimately 100 randomly selected firefighters underwent a battery of fitness tests at the Human Performance Laboratory that included measures of cardiopulmonary performance and muscular fitness.

Concurrent with the fitness tests and with the assistance of the Maryland Fire Rescue Institute (MFRI), Drs. Dotson and Davis designed a criterion task test (CTT) employing five commonly performed or highly critical fireground evolutions. Each of the 100 firefighters performed the five tasks successively while wearing full protective ensemble (including SCBA) “in the same manner as at the scene of a fire.” After all testing, the results of the laboratory fitness measures were statistically correlated against the C1-1- performances. This landmark study demonstrated a high correlation between personal fitness and job performance. That was in 1976.

In 1991, Dr. Davis hit upon an idea that would eventually become the Challenge. He had observed the competitive nature of firefighters during the initial testing back in 1976. So, he thought, “why not devise a competition that would highlight the unique nature of the fire service and showcase the talents and capabilities of firefighters.” The CTT seemed the perfect “vehicle” for the task.

In early 1991, he approached the Washington, DC, Council of Governments to get support for his idea, briefing the various fire chiefs on his concept for the competition. With their approval he worked with the Fire Training Officer Sub-committee and came up with the rules for the competition. Everything was ready.

Sunday, May 5, 1991, dawned bright and cool. Teams from five departments in the D.C. metropolitan area gathered at MFRI to christen what would become the Firefighter Combat Challenge. Quiet as church mice while instructions and rules were given, the several hundred spectators erupted spontaneously as the first competitor made his way to the top of the tower. The crowd’s response told Davis that he was onto something. TV coverage and a four-page color story in Fire Chief Magazine added credibility to the event.

The first Challenge was won by Prince William County, VA, in a time of 10:08. Although that was the only event that first year, the seeds of competition had been sown. The next year, 1992, with DuPont as the presenting sponsor, saw seven competitions and the first truly national championship held during the International Association of Fire Chiefs’ (IAFC) annual meeting in Anaheim, CA. The Casper Fire Department took top honors.

By 1993 the Challenge had expanded to twelve events spread across the nation. ESPN initiated its coverage of the Challenge at the National Championship, the first-ever indoor competition. The Championship, held in Dallas, TX, during the annual IAFC meeting, was won, again, by Casper.

The Aurora Reflection Memorial Garden

In February, one of our plumbing technicians Zolie Balint was sent out to conduct an annual plumbing inspection for one of our Home Care Club members Mrs. Rena Medek. As Zolie was explaining the inspection process and his findings during the visit, Mrs. Medek struck up a conversation and handed him a flyer for the Reflection Memorial Garden at the Aurora Xeriscape Garden. She went on to explain that in 2012 her daughter, Micayla Medek was a victim of the Aurora Theater shooting and through the 7/20 Memorial Foundation, they are trying to raise money through donations to build a memorial to honor all involved in this tragic event. Zolie was quick to mention the Brothers Gives Back program to Mrs. Medek and submitted the flyer along with a donation request on behalf of Mrs. Medek.

Thanks to Mrs. Medek, Zolie, and a friendly conversation, Brothers is honored to submit a donation through the Brothers Gives Back program for $1000.00 to the 7/20 Memorial Foundation for the Reflection Memorial Garden in memory of Micayla Medek.

The 7/20 Memorial Foundation, composed of family of victims, survivors, and others directly impacted by the tragedy, is seeking donations for the enhancements to the planned garden. The funds raised will be used solely for these purposes. If you would like to contribute, donations may be made online by clicking here or they can be sent to:
