SCOTT FIREFIGHTER COMBAT CHALLENGE®
For the sixth year, the Scott Firefghter Combat Challenge® will take place
at FDIC 2017. 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 frefghting by performing a linked series of fve
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. The Challenge seeks to encourage frefghter
ftness and demonstrate the profession’s rigors to the public.
9/11 MEMORIAL STAIR CLIMB
LUCAS OIL STADIUM
Fire service members convene in high-rise buildings across the
United States to climb 110 stories as a tribute to their fallen brothers.
The 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb is not a race, but an opportunity to
honor and remember the 343 FDNY members who selfessly gave
their lives so that others might live.
TENTH ANNUAL FDIC COURAGE
AND VALOR FUN RUN
The tenth annual FDIC Courage and Valor Fun Run will take place
at the White River State Park located just a short walk from the
Indianapolis Convention Center. The scenic, fat, fast course winds
around the canal and provides runners with an absolutely safe
(no traffc crossings) opportunity to enjoy a brisk fun run with their
fellow frefghters. Timing and management of the run are going to
be handled by Tuxedo Brothers for the more serious runners. It’s a
chance for everyone to get out and show a commitment to good
health and well-being. All proceeds go to help sponsor the Ray
Downey Courage and Valor Medal and Award presented each
year at FDIC. All are welcome to participate.
