“This will be a fantastic day for firefighters across Wales and further afield to get together and to enjoy some friendly competition. We currently have firefighters from Wales, England, Scotland, Ireland and Germany registered to compete on the day and we look forward to welcoming them all.” - Watch Manager Dominic Norcross, one of the Challenge’s main organisers
The Welsh Firefighter Challenge is a set of tough physical and mental tests, undertaken in full structural fire kit, which are designed to showcase the skills and strength of firefighters. The Welsh Firefighter Challenge isn’t just a day for firefighters to test their strength, endurance and skills, it’s also an opportunity to come together as a community, to support and celebrate each other’s achievements and to highlight their continued professionalism and dedication in keeping their communities safe.
As well as providing a day of entertainment for firefighters and their spectators, the Welsh Firefighter Challenge will also be raising important funds for The Fire Fighters Charity, which offers specialist and lifelong support for members of the fire services community throughout the UK.
On the day, there’ll also be a ‘Community Safety Village’ where spectators will have the opportunity to visit a variety of organisations, such as Wales Air Ambulance, the RNLI and many more, providing a great opportunity to discuss and receive community safety advice.
Saturday 3rd of June 2023 , Oxford Street , Swansea.
