Scott's Firefighter Combat Challenge @ Boulder County Fairgrounds | Longmont | Colorado | United States

The Boulder County Fair will be hosting a first time event called “Salute to First Responders” July 28th and 29th. Bringing the National Firefighter Combat Challenge (FCC) to the Longmont fairgrounds will promote and showcase the talents, skills and athleticism of National and Colorado firefighter heroes in an exciting and entertaining sports competition that travels to approximately 25 locations throughout the country every year. Simulating many of the essential skills of firefighting – e.g., climbing a five story tower, dragging and hoisting fire hose, racing around obstacles, man down rescue, simulating forcible entry, etc. – the FCC motivates, identifies and celebrates America’s best of the best’ firefighters. Local teams and individual competitors of all ages compete against each other and the clock for bragging rights and medals. After years of coverage on ESPN and the Versus television network, the FCC is widely followed by the firefighting community nationally, the general public and the news media around the country as they search for “good news” stories to cover in their local communities. We will also have a Kid’s challenge area.
Come join us for this brand new event! Support local and National law enforcement and Firefighters in a fun, spirited event!
