FireFit

The Scott FireFit Championships is a competition based on fire fighting tasks commonly performed in emergency situations. There are many different levels of Competitors, from the seasoned 10 year veteran to the first time rookies. The FireFt Event is very demanding. Training prior to competition is imperative. Your first Event will be an eye opener but will give you a base to work from. You will meet many other first time Competitors as well as those who have made this their sport and have been competing for years. Take advantage of the fact that the course is open for inspection, in most cases, the day before the Event takes place. Come down and meet the FireFit Crew as well as other Competitors!

About The Climb

On May 5, 2019, hundreds of firefighters from all over North America and the world will climb the stairs of Calgary's BOW tower, Western Canada's tallest building, in support of firefighters and citizens living with cancer. Calgary is poised to cheer on the brave ones who will climb the 775 vertical feet –  1204 steps – of THE BOW Building in full duty gear.  Starting at 3400 feet above sea level, this climb is the highest elevation firefighter stairclimb in the world!

Originally inspired by Seattle's Scott Firefighter Stairclimb, Kathy Blas, sister of local fallen firefighter Gord Paul, brought this event to the attention of the Calgary Fire Department, the Calgary Firefighters Benevolent Society (CFBS) and a local cancer charity, Wellspring Calgary. Wellspring provides programs, resources and support to people living with cancer along with their caregivers. There are 17 presumptive cancers that are a recognized occupational hazard of the firefighter's job. Those who live with cancer are heroes to their families and friends, living out each day with courage and hope. Firefighters also provide courage and hope; they are our everyday heroes. The event is fully endorsed and supported by the Calgary Fire Department.

Wellspring Calgary is pleased to announce Wellspring will gift a portion of net proceeds to support the Firefighters Assistance Charitable Society (FACS); their mission is to empower and strengthen the firefighter by enhancing the success and resilience of the firefighter community.

The Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge is an annual event held every spring in Calgary, Alberta. We are delighted to recognize H&R Reit as host of the Bow Tower.
