NEW: Local Firefighters Prep for Combat Challenge in Bellevue Washington

Bellevue Washington | An annual event you don’t want to miss is coming to Bellevue, where Firefighters will “compete” on a timed course pulling fire hose and spraying at targets, “rescuing” victims and running up several “flights” of stairs on one of America’s iconic “fire” combat course.

Seattle and other Cities have been host to the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge course which in year’s past has been filmed and great entertainment for you and your family. We will be there too snapping up firefighters in action.

Little ones can also “compete” during a Kid’s Firefighter Challenge.  Those are always fun to watch and photograph as well.

You will not want to miss this event to be held this Saturday and Sunday on July 11 and 12, 2015 at Bellevue’s Market Place at Factoria [aka Factoria Square Mall] located at 4055 Factoria Square Mall SE in Bellevue, Washington 98006.

Sunbelt Rentals will be bringing their award-winning Wounded Warrior Project lift to this event.

Sponsored by Sunbelt Rentals, Bellevue Fire and Genie company.  This will surely be the most fun you’ve had in a long time.  Firefighters would LOVE if you cheered them on to victory.   They also LOVE visitors to cheer them before, during and after “competing”, as well as just chatting them up.

It’s going to be a very HOT day, so here’s a few recommendations/reminders:

  • If out in the sun, remember to drink LOTS of water. [There are multiple stores in the area: SAFEWAY, Walmart, 7-11 and area restaurants]
  • Pets are welcome but remember, their pads are sensitive and can burn if standing/walking on hot pavement.
  • PLEASE DO NOT leave your Pets in the car.  It will be TOO HOT for them and residents in the area care a lot about pets and if seen in a HOT car will call 9-1-1 or break your windows. SAVE your PET and your vehicle windows.
  • Sunscreen is key to stopping sunburns and avoiding the sun’s rays.

MOST OF ALL, have lots of fun!

We’ll see you there.
