Midnight Alarm / Bucket Brigade – The event will begin with 5 members lying down with turnout gear nearby. At sound of whistle, members will get fully dressed, including gloves and Nomex hood. Once a member is completely dressed, they will proceed to raise a single stage ladder against a building. They will then fill a barrel with water from a holding tank using only buckets passed up to person on ladder. The team with the quickest time wins. In the event of a tie, tied teams will compete again.
Command Post - 3 members (wearing blinders) will start from their commander who will be positioned at a panel with a 4” opening. The personnel being guided by their commander will retrieve a hose line and the team that places the most water in a barrel wins the event. This event is timed and will last only 2 minutes.
Rescue Obstacle Course - 4 member team used. 2 members will rescue a dummy. 2 members will retrieve Stokes basket. Both sets of members will meet at determined spot, correctly secure dummy in Stokes basket and guide dummy through a predetermined course. The team with the fastest time wins. Penalty points will be accrued for not completing an obstacle or not correctly securing dummy to Stokes basket. (Extrication gloves may be worn in this event)
