The Firefighter Challenge
Join the 200+ firefighters from over 50 departments coming from the Northeast!
Our Firefighter Challenge offers individual and team awards, along with participation categories including elite firefighters in gear, firefighters in full-gear or no gear.
As a participant you gain access to one of the tallest buildings in New England at 41 floors, 82 flights of stairs, and 601 feet tall. This provides the chance to show off your skills and climb a skyscraper not found in many local towns.
Do you have what it takes to reach the top?
The winner is the team with 5 or more members with the 5 fastest individual times combined.
There is a trophy winner for in-gear and no gear.
