Scott Combat Challenge – Marlborough, MA (Page #1) - May 15, 2010

Eight Carver Firefighters travelled to Marlborough, Ma and “took the challenge”. Billed as the toughest 2 minutes in sports, the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge seeks to encourage firefighter fitness and demonstrate the profession’s rigors to the public. Wearing “full bunker gear” and the SCOTT Air-Pak breathing apparatus, pairs of competitors race head-to-head as they simulate the physical demands of real-life firefighting by performing a linked series of five tasks including climbing the 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.
