More news on Team FireCraft members and their outstanding performance at the Scott Firefighters' Combat Challenge:Irena Elmstrom placed 1st at Nationals with David Bowman in Co-ed tandem at the US Nationals in Tyler TX. Congratulations, Irena and David!
The excellence continued at the World Competition in Louisville last weekend:
The women took second in the 2017 World Championship Firefighter Combat Challenge Female Relay.
Brittany Hoffman, the newest member of Team FireCraft, took second in the World Individual.
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 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.
Congratulations to all competitors!
