In preparation for the launch of our 19th season (Tour 2010), First Responder Institute is continuing a new program designed to provide interested firefighters with an opportunity to experience the Firefighter Combat Challenge in a training environment far removed from the platform of a high-energy public sports exhibition. New this season, we will be working to restructure the clinics for more consistency no matter which clinic you attend.
The “Good 2 Go” program will be conducted the afternoon before every event.
Every firefighter who has witnessed in person, on ESPN or the Versus Network has wondered what it feels like to take the Challenge. Now, you can get hands-on training from Challenge experts on a high fidelity version of the official Firefighter Combat Challenge course at a location near you.
This new program was designed with you in mind. We’ll give you an overview of the rich history of the Challenge, the unparalleled science that formed the basis of this five-task evolution and insider techniques to ensure that you’re “Good to Go” the first time you step out on the course.
Participating in the Challenge as a bona fide competitor might not be your cup of tea; but like most firefighters, you’re still interested in firefighter fitness and how you stack up. The G2G Clinic will answer that question as we take you from the didactic to the practical.
We’ll dissect the five events: the tower climb, hose hoist, forcible entry, hose advance and victim rescue into their biomechanical components. You’ll learn how to transition and use techniques to make the task easier and faster. Participants who meet their competition category cut points will be qualified to run in the open division in any regional event.
Each participant will receive a Certificate of Attendance, or Successful Completion. Qualifiers will earn the “Good 2 Go” tee shirt. Registration fee is $25.00
