September 3rd, 2018 – Firefighter Combat Challenge


Event

From October 22nd to 27th, 2018, the 27th WC Firefighter Combat Challenge will be held in Sacramento, CA, USA. Discover this epic contest, sponsored by POK®, where many Fire Brigades are competing against each other.

The first edition of this competition was held in May 1991 and it involved 5 fire departments from the United States. 27 years later, teams from across the world came together in great numbers. This real physical challenge is a tremendous opportunity for firefighters from countries like New Zealand, Germany, Argentina and even France to compete in events that reflect the extreme working conditions of fire soldiers.

Nowadays this competition consists of 5 tasks which are climbing a tower of 5 floors, lifting, chopping, dragging pipes and rescuing a victim of 80 kg. The purpose of these tests is to encourage the good physical condition of the Firefighters.

This competition is perfectly in line with POK’s values. This is the main reason why POK is a partner of the event. Our product development department has developed the Victory Hand nozzle for this event. An innovation that combines robustness, precision, light weight and easy handling. During competitions, this POK product saves many seconds.

This year again, POK invites you to follow this competition, which we support. We will keep you informed of the results of this competition.
