The first Regional Firefighter Championships of 2016 will be held in Forbes on the weekend of the 12th and 13th of March at Stephen Field. Firefighters compete in eight Regional Championships over a two year period in preparation for the State Championships held every two years.
The Championships will showcase the skills and expertise a modern firefighter uses everyday when attacking a fire or responding to a hazard or major emergency or accident. Teams of firefighters compete against each other in a range of events designed to hone their fire fighting skills. The events
emulate real life challenges which give the competitors an opportunity to showcase their firefighting, team work, leadership and problem solving skills on land, on water and in the air.
Andrew Rousell, a firefighter with the Forbes Brigade, is encouraging everyone
to come along to see the best of the best volunteers from across NSW battle it out for Championship points and have a great day out for the whole family.
