Some Tulsa (OK) firefighters are currently in training for an intense competition, the Scott Safety 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.
One Tulsa firefighter explains that training makes them better at their job. “The guys that are doing this are better prepared for what they’re doing out at the scene.”
