IU Health Saxony Hospital Presents: The Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge®

The Fishers Freedom Festival, Town of Fishers and will host the regional Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge® (FCC) on June 28-39, 2014.  IU Health Saxony Hospital is the Presenting Sponsor for this event. The mission of the FCC is to promote and showcase the talents, skills and athleticism of America’s firefighter heroes in an exciting and entertaining sports competition. The FCC travels to approximately 25 locations throughout the country every year simulating many of the essential skills of firefighting. Some of the skills showcased are climbing a five story tower in full gear, dragging and hoisting a fire hose, racing around obstacles and simulating forcible entry. The FCC motivates, identifies and celebrates America’s “best of the best” firefighters. After years of coverage on ESPN and the Versus television network, the FCC is widely followed by the firefighter community, the general public and the news media around the country as they search for “good news” stories to cover in their local communities. At any given regional competition, 75 to 175 competitors will participate in the FCC.
