Altus Firefighters Team Dr Pepper
Altus Firefighters Team Dr Pepper took 2nd Place in the Relay Competition at the Firefighters Combat Challenge in Farmers Branch, Texas on Saturday. The Over 50 Tandem team also took the 1st place run.
The Firefighter Combat Challenge is an event held throughout the United States where firefighters compete in fire/rescue related events. The Firefighter Combat Challenge events are based on duties firefighters have to do when fighting a fire.
The challenge includes a linked series of five tasks including climbing a 5-story tower, hoisting, chopping, dragging hoses and rescuing a life-sized, 175 lb. “victim” as they race against themselves, their opponent and the clock.
