Firefighters battle it out at the National Firefighter Combat Challenge

May 05, 2017. The 2017 Nation Firefighter Combat Challenge was held on Friday at the Wellington waterfront. The event is compared to the Iron Man challenge but with a firefighting twist; "wearing full bunker gear and breathing from a BA set, competitors race against each other and the clock in a series of tasks across the course." The competitors face 5 gruelling tasks that include climbing a 6 storey tower carrying a 19kg hose, extending a charged hose to knock down a target and dragging a life sized dummy 30m.
