14 teams competed over two days in June at the South East Queensland Firefighter Championships at Limestone Park in Ipswich. The teams all competed against each other during 10 different firefighting events. Each event is designed to test different skills that the firefighters are trained to use on the fire ground.
Honours from the hard-fought weekend went to Mt Tamborine Auxilliaries in first place, Marburg Auxilliaries in second place and third place going to Laidley Auxilliaries. These three teams will now compete at the Qld State Firefighter Championships to be held at Limestone Park in Ipswich on 6th, 7th & 8th August.
Team Marburg, consisting of Nick Doyle, Glen Looker, Steve Foote and Brad Dance are very happy with these results, but are planning to lift their training level to new heights to be able to be competitive against the best teams from over the state. So, if you’re passing the station and you see them training, give them a toot for encouragement.
