We will be making use of a key site ensuring a truly eye-catching location.

We will be bringing together competitors from over 30 fire and rescue services around the UK and even further afield to compete in five disciplines: Trauma Care, Rope Rescue, Urban Search and Rescue, Vehicle Extrication and Water Rescue. This year we’re also pleased to be adding a further challenge open to all members of the UK Fire and Rescue Service – the UK’s Firefighter Fitness Challenge.

The event itself is a unique spectacle with teams assessed as they undertake various challenges in front of a live audience. This year will be the most engaging and interactive iteration of the competition yet, with more opportunities to get involved and digital ways to follow the action than ever before.
