Imbil Easter Carnival FIRE FIGHTERS CHALLENGE
Teams of 4 from take on Fire Fighter tasks whilst racing against the clock. The 2 fastest teams then challenge each other for First Prize. FREE ENTRY
The Firefighters Challenge is an exciting event which sees teams of 4 from the community undertake Fire Fighter tasks whilst racing against the clock. Then the fastest 2 teams race each other in the final playoff to find fastest and fittest team and to win the $100 prize money
In 2019 the competition was fierce with the local Football Club challenging the Tennis Club for the final – and it was a very close race. Hundreds of people cheered the teams on and it was a great spectacle.
The 2020 challenge consists of 4 components where each team member must:
Hold the Road Crash Rescue Spreaders or cutters, at waist height for 2 minutes – they are not light
Bowl a coiled length of fire fighting hose completely out – not as easy as it sounds
Then they have to roll the whole length up again – neatly
Lastly is the rescue – where each team member drags a 70kg dummy for 20 metres.
Teams of 4 will race against the clock individually, then the 2 fastest teams will race against each other for glory of first place.
