State Open Competition - 2 day event
Time & Location
About the event
Come down and watch Volunteer Firefighters from all over Western Australia compete in traditional and modern firefighting games.
Saturday’s Program of events, which will be run on the main track include:
- Hydrant Races
- Double Flaked Hose Event
- Hose and Ladder Races
- Light Tanker Races and
- Wet Hose Events
On Sunday, a six event Operational Equipment competition will be held.
The first event will commence at 0900 hours until midday or thereabouts; followed by a sausage sizzle, a few drinks and a chance to catch up with members of Brigades from all over the State.
At this stage, it is a trial to gauge interest and provide Brigades with some training exercises that can be undertaken with small crews. Five of the six events are for crews of four, whilst the final event is a two competitor event (two events with a light tanker, two events with a pumper and two events on the ground).
All equipment will be provided to teams, so you just have to find 4 members (you can even make up a team from various Brigades in your Zone if you need to) and come down to North Fremantle to have a go. Winners of the overall competition will win a carton or two of a refreshing beverage.
To give you an idea of the events, check out the following videos from the Australasian Firefighting Championships:

Other events run at the Australasian Championships can be found at their You Tube channel. Our events will not be run on the competition track, not on grass.
It would be great to see as many of you as can get down – we’re hoping that this will turn into a separate competition that we can run at the Easter Championships.
