This exciting, adrenaline rushing annual Loggerodeo event is at 10:00a.m. at the Sedro- Woolley High School Football Field on Saturday June 29th, 2013.
The Washington Firefighter Competition Invitational is presented each year by the Sedro-Woolley Fire Department.
“The show has new demonstrations each year – it keeps it current and entertaining to newcomers as well as those who have enjoyed our shows in the past,” says Todd Olsen, Assistant Fire Chief/Training Officer of the Sedro-Woolley Fire Department.
The competition encourages firefighter fitness and demonstrates the profession’s rigors to the public.
Wearing “full bunker gear” and their SCBA, competitors simulate the physical demands of real-life firefighting by performing a linked series of four tasks. These tasks include climbing 4-stories, chopping, dragging hoses and rescuing a life-sized, 165 lb. “victim” as they race against themselves, their opponent and the clock. There will also be a live fire demonstration as well as a ladder truck demonstration.
A suggested donation of $5 will be accepted at the entry gate. All proceeds from this event will go towards firefighting equipment.
