North Shore Fire Department Explorer Post Combat Challenge

July 15, 2010

Glendale(WI): The North Shore Fire Department Explorer Post 215 along with the North

Shore Fire Department will host the second annual Fire Department Explorer Post Combat

Challenge on Saturday, July 17, 2010 starting at 8am and ending at approximately 1pm.

 

This year, approximately 40 young adults from ages fourteen to twenty-one will be

competing. These young competitors come from several different fire departments including, North Shore, Cedarburg, City of Milwaukee, Grafton, Lyons, Menomonee Falls and Oak Creek.

 

The explorer combat challenge is nearly identical to the firefighter combat challenge for

professional firefighters as seen on ESPN. The challenge consists of simulated firefighting

events including a stair climb while carrying hose, pulling hose up to a third story window from the exterior, simulating forced entry to a structure, advancing a hose line on level ground and rescuing a victim from a fire.

 

The event is a friendly yet competitive way for local young adults interested in firefighting

to come together and demonstrate their skills. Many of the competitors hope to move beyond their explorer status and eventually land career firefighting jobs on a department. The challenge has both an individual competition and team relay event with awards in each.

 

The community is encouraged to come out and cheer on these local young adults at the

North Shore Fire Department’s Station #2 located at 5901 N. Milwaukee River Parkway in

Glendale.
