At the Fair: Firefighter Combat Challenge
Members of the Grand Island Fire Department have joined with the Nebraska State Fair to host the “fastest two minutes in sports” when the Scott Fire Fighter Combat Challenge comes to the Nebraska State Fair for a two day regional event.
Events start at 11 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday before Labor Day.
Saturday will be individual races on the course while Sunday will display tandem and team relays. This is the first time the Scott Fire Fighter Combat Challenge has been in Grand Island and it was been several years since the last time this event was in Nebraska (Omaha).
Firefighters from across the country will be coming to Grand Island to compete in this event with Nebraska being represented as well.
