“Its kind of a big date. Its the tenth anniversary of 9-11 and to be able to hold a competition that revolves around firefighters is pretty special to us. We got pretty lucky being able to get those dates.”

Casper Firefighter, Bill Bohman, explains that the Firefighter Combat Challenge started out as a physical fitness test for firefighters that called for specific tasks to be accomplished against the clock. He says it’s just in the nature of firefighters to be competitive and so it evolved over time into a  competition.

He says, for the event next month he’s heard there will be good attendance from around the region.

“It sounds like there are quite a few people who are going to come up – Omaha, Nebraska, the United State Airforce Academy, hopefully some teams from South Dakota, a lot of teams from Colorado, and we might even get some Canadian competitors.”

The Casper Firefighter Combat Challenge, Downtown Throw Down, will be on Saturday, September 10th and Sunday, September 11th, on the 200 block of South David Street in downtown Casper.  We’ll let you know the final schedule of events when we get closer to the date.
