MONTGOMERY, AL -
Montgomery firefighters swept the regional Firefighters Combat Challenge competition hosted in Albertville last weekend, claiming first-place wins in the individual, team, relay and tandem events, all of which promote fitness and highlight the readiness and skills required of firefighters in meeting the demands of their jobs.
Wearing full gear and breathing apparatus, competitors race against the clock and against their opponents as they simulate the physical demands of firefighting. The five linked tasks they perform are climbing the five-story tower, hoisting, chopping, dragging hoses and rescuing a life-sized 175-pound "victim."
Montgomery firefighter Jake Baker finished first in the individual competition, with Jacob Julian, also a Montgomery firefighter, beating out the other competitors to claim second place. In addition to placing first in all four regional events, the team also won third-place honors in the tandem competition.
Montgomery fielded its first Firefighter Combat Challenge team in 2010, and has consistently finished in the top 16 in worldwide competition. Teams from the United States, Canada and other countries compete in regional challenge events during the spring and summer, leading up to the national and world competitions each fall.
ESPN, which has televised the Combat Challenge for years, refers to the competition as "the toughest two minutes in sports." Montgomery is slated to host the Combat Challenge in July 2012.
The members of Montgomery's 2012 Combat Challenge Team are Jake Baker, Christian Dealba, Robert Hill, Jacob Julian, Greg Lowery, Chase Park, Brian Powell, Matt Thames, and Denver Thompson
