FireFit World Finals OPEN FOR REGISTRATION

Hello All! FireFit World Finals is OPEN For REGISTRATION! If you have qualified you will have received an email stating that you have received a WildCard Spot or Bye Spot. When you login the system will show what you have earned by competing at a Regional Event. If you have not yet competed at a Regional then you will not have earned a WC or Bye spot yet and therefor will not be able to register for FireFit World Finals.

 

For our International Competitors you will need to create a Competitor Profile in the FireFit database. In most cases your Fire Department will not be in our database yet so you will need to request a Department be added to our database. IMPORTANT This usually takes 12 to 24 hours. Once it is added you will receive an email confirmation and be able to finish your Competitor Profile. Registration for International Competitors is a 2 step process as we need you to go in and Register on the FireFit website for the International Event you competed in. There is no cost of course, it is so that we can mark you as receiving a WildCard or Bye spot from your International Event. Then once this is done FireFit will mark if you have received a WC or Bye, you will receive the email stating which and then you will be able to go in and Register for FireFit World Finals.

 

Any questions please contact firefit@firefit.com

We are excited to see you in beautiful Spruce Meadows!!!

Modified Rule for X3 Competitors UNDER 5'6" in height

X3 Rule for Competitors UNDER 5'6" in height.

Competitors who are under 5’6” in height will be allowed to use a high-rise pak to stand on to do the donut-roll pull.  Once at the top of the tower the competitor will remove the high-rise pak from the box at the top of the tower and place it flat (widest part facing up) on the deck of the tower next to the railing.  They will then be allowed to stand on the pak and proceed with the next evolution the Donut-roll hoist.  Once the Donut-roll is in the box they may continue down the stairs.  The Competitor does NOT need to put the high-rise pak back in the box.  This will be done by the Tower Resetter.

See you on the course!  Fitter, Faster, Stronger... FireFit!

New Mixed Relay Rules!

Hello All Mixed Relay Teams!

This Event has quickly becoming very popular!  We have experienced some issues ensuring that after the Seeding Round that all Members of a team are switching and so with the input from a number of Mixed Relay Team Members we have come up with a new format that we will be trying in Martensville this weekend.  Here are the changes:

Teams will flip a coin and the winning team will have the choice of either picking a side of the course or spinning the wheel to determine what the female members of the teams will do.

The evolutions on the wheel (Or in the hat, till we get the wheel) are:

  1. Stairs UP
  2. Donut Roll Pull
  3. Stairs DOWN
  4. Force Machine
  5. Run Hydrants
  6. Hose Drag / Show Water
  7. Victim Rescue
  8. Spinners Choice (Yup you choose the evolution!)
  9. Stairs Up / Stairs Down
  10. Donut Roll / Stairs Down
  11. Stairs Down / Force Machine
  12. Force Machine/ Hydrants

Every race will require the evolution to be chosen before the Relay is run including Seeding round, Bronze and Gold Medal rounds.

We hope that this new format help elevate the need to police teams and make the Mixed Relay even more fun!

See you on the course!

Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival

As someone who is afraid of heights I expected to be scared on a hot air balloon ride but it was the exact opposite, I found it to be a very calming experience! Go up in one and take in the view down below. Or you can also take in the view of hot air balloons in the sky from the comfort of solid ground. The Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival has plenty of other activities like an amusement park, 1001 hidden treasures, meet the pilot, buskers, concerts and more! Join in on the fun August 31st to September 4th at La Baie Park in Gatineau.

 

Nordik Spa

If you want to feel completely relaxed and rejuvenated then head to Nordik Spa! Enjoy thermotherapy in world class facilities at North America’s largest spa. They also have a salt water floating pool, that is the second of its kind in the world, the other being in Switzerland! Treat yourself to the outdoor baths, sauna, relaxation areas, massages and more! Add to the experience and enjoy a glass of wine as you lounge in the pools.

Heaven is blessed with another angel...

Our good friend and FireFit competitor Jeanie Allen. Anyone who ever met Jeanie remembers her contagious smile and can do spirit. Through her friendships and battle with cancer she has inspired hundreds of people to live every day to the fullest and never give up. She will be truly missed but how proud she is that her spirit lives on in each of us. Like she always said "Carpe Diem".

In honour of Jeanie, her ‘Army’ has designed a sticker which we will offer for sale for $5.00.  They will be available at FireFit Events beginning in Point Edward, Ontario.  All funds generated from the stickers will be put into a Scholarship Trust Fund for her two children Skye and Jess. 

Jeanie you touched so many around the world.  We honour the fight that you fought and will miss you dearly but know that you are now no longer in pain.  God bless and keep you.

In Memory of Kevin Hegarty  - Time to do something!

I am sure I am not the only one… but, It has taken me a number of weeks to comprehend the loss of Surrey Fire Fighter, Kevin Hegarty.  I have had moments of overwhelming grief when all of a sudden Kevin comes to mind and I am overcome knowing that he was in such turmoil and didn’t get the help he needed.  There is one memory of Kevin that continues to come back to me… It was our first FireFit Event in 1995.  The Place, Lantzville, the first FireFit BC Regional. Kevin and his team of Richie Pasqua, Mike McNamara and Andrew Piggott were young Volunteer FireFighters with the City of Surrey and eager to compete.  The picture that keeps coming back to me is Kevin holding my 1 year old son Connor, as he watched over his team mate Andrew who was recovering in the Medical Area after a rough race.  Kevin stayed with Drew, making sure he was ok and giving him some light hearted ribbing as my son Connor fell asleep in Kevin’s arms.  It was such a sweet moment and Kevin was true to form, taking care of those that needed help, including my little son who needed a cuddle and arms to fall asleep in.

When I heard of Kevin’s passing and its circumstances all I could think about was that picture.  I searched for it high and low as I knew it was somewhere in my house!  I have been haunted by the thought of this photo and not being able to find it… and today I found it!  Actually I found 3 moments captured in time.                

          

We met Kevin in 1994, when he was a Volunteer Fire Fighter with the City of Surrey.  A young, exuberant, full of piss and vinegar young man who just wanted to be a firefighter… fight fires and save lives!   Kevin was part of a Team that lead the way for, at the time 12 Surrey Volunteer FireFit Teams , or what was known back then as Combat  Teams.  His team was fit, fast, young and hardworking.  They were ready to participate and be part of the firefighting community and all hoped to become full time firefighters.    This dream came true for Kevin and his team in 1995 when they were picked to take part in Class 2 of the Justice Institutes Fire Service Training Program.  Kevin, Mike & Richie all entered the program together and all became Surrey Fire Fighters.  For nearly 20 years Kevin served the City of Surrey and its residents. Kevin became an Acting Captain but also assisting with the Surrey Fire Fighters Charitable Society, BC Burn Fund and advocating for mental health after experiencing his own struggles with PTSD.  Unfortunately Kevin lost his battle with PTSD and this is what brought many of us together on March 30th at his memorial. 

It was the sight of so many of our past and present FireFit Competitors and the knowledge of Kevin’s struggle that made me realize how vulnerable even the strongest and fittest can be.  I feel the need to do something to protect these men and women who every day put their lives on the line for their communities.  As chance may have it, we have been given an opportunity to do just that, to avenge the loss of Kevin.  On May 23rd & 24th the Vancouver Firefighters’ Charitable Society (VFCS) will host a FireFit Event in downtown Vancouver, they have put together a charity event that will raise funds for the creation of a pioneering First Responder PTSD Program at VGH Hospital.  Here is the chance we need to do something to support our First Responders who come to us in our times of need.  Now we can help them and their families so that they don’t have to suffer silently or on their own and hopefully we can prevent what happened to Kevin. 

Please spread the word about this Event.

BC Event

Due to the late date, we have had to withdraw our request for a 2014 BC Event.  Grant Hudseth & Fiona Morgenthaler-Code have been working on hosting an Event in the Okanagan but, with less than a month to get organized, we feel that it is in everyone’s best interests to work towards Hosting next year.  We will be looking at which of the Alberta Events should be designated as the BC Regional in order to award National Bye's.  Stay tuned!

Relay Rules Update

Relay Rules Update

Exchange at Force Machine

Once the competitor has both feet on the ground he/she may pass off the flashlight to the next competitor who is on or moves to the force machine.  Please note the force machine can not be used to enable the exchange.  Exchanges must be grasp to grasp and in clear view for the official.

In discussions with our referee's at Finals last year it was clear that this area can be a difficult one to judge.  This is why we are ammending how the exchange needs to happen.

FireFit Finals 2014 - New Format!

FireFit Finals 2014 - New Format!

The 2014 Finals will be held in Longueuil, Quebec!  Preperations are already underway and it is going to be a GREAT event!  We are adding an additional 'Wild Card Day' which will allow Competitors to have more than one individual run (maximum of 2) prior to final Individual Day on Saturday!  This will also allow us to do the seeding round for Relay on the Friday so that on Sunday we will go straight into Knockout Rounds.  With Montreal scheduled for the weekend prior to Finals in Longueuil this affords Competitors the ability to have a great week of Competition! This will also allow American & European Competitors to take advantage of competing in two FireFit Competitions in one trip to Canada!  See you on the Course!

July 24th, 2013 - Miramichi, New Brunswick

Well it has been a long time since if have updated this page... :0

My apologies!

The 2013 Season is going along well with perhaps the oddest weather paterns we have seen in 20 Years! As we made our way across the country from BC to Ontario we dodged rain storms, tornado's and severe thunder storms. It seemed every place we left got hit with something... Fort Mac, Edmonton, Calgary, Medicine Hat, Swift Current, Toronto, Montreal... yikes!  Is it us?  We hear it is beautiful in BC!

The weather aside we have had some great Events with most seeing sunny skies and in some cases extreme heat (Longueuil and Bridgewater of all places!)  We have to thank all of our Hosts, Township of Langley, Syncrude, Brooks, Moose Winooski's, Longueuil and Bridgewater for putting together outstanding Events!  As you can see from the Results Page we have had some fantastic times run already this year and we think they are going to get BETTER! Just wait till Nationals!

Speaking of Nationals we are working on getting the Registration Open within the next week.  A spreadsheet will be posted of those who have earned bye's onto Final Day.  Also Banquet Tickets need to be pre-ordered through Bob Murray and can be paid for either by cheque or Etransfer.  Please contact Bob via email ( robert.murray@edmonton.ca ) prior to September 1st.

We are also looking at doing a live streaming of Saturday and Sunday competitions so stay tuned for more details on this!

Off we go to Mont Joli, Quebec!  See you on the coarse!

September 20th, 2011 - MEDICINE HAT, ALBERTA - 2011 CANADIAN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

What a fabulous week of racing and camaraderie in Medicine Hat, Alberta!  Teams from across the country participated in one of the smoothest and most enjoyable Nationals that Dale and I can remember in our 18 years!  A massive thank you must go out to Steve Seymour and Jason Elder for their attention to detail and tireless enthusiasm! To the Medicine Hat, CFB Suffield Teams we thank you for all of your help as well in set-up and tear down and to the Volunteers who made the Event run smoothly over the 4 days of Competition, thank you, thank you, thank you!  The Community support was also outstanding with great crowds chearing our Competitors on to Personal Bests day after day.  Lambton College, who always chip in after Competitions, YOU ROCK, we really appreciate your help!

We would also like to thank all of our 2011 Regional Hosts from Coquitlam, British Columbia to Stephenville, Newfoundland and everyone in between!  And to the many many friends who generously invite us to drop in and stay and offer their amazing hospitality across the country.

Special mention goes out to Denis Charbonneau and Ivan Brown who always arrive ready to chip in and are, our 'Chef's on the road'! BBQ anyone?  Craig and Sandee Harnum and their tireless energy, our little 'EverReady' bunnies! See you on the road next year!  And the wonderful thing about the Fire Service is that where ever we go there are always helping hands!  We are so very blessed, thank you.

To all of our Competitors! It is a privilage to know you all! Your dedication and determination to make yourselves the best that you can be is inspirational!  We salute you! 

Safe Travels to all and we look forward to seeing you all in 2012!

Stay safe, train smart and be Fitter, Faster, Stronger... FireFit!

Dale, Hilary, Connor & Cassie!
