On May 25th and 26th 2024 the Courtenay Fire Department will be hosting the BC Regional Firefit Championships on 4th Street in Downtown Courtenay. This two-day competition allows competitors from across North America to represent their departments and compete in the following events: individual, tandem, and in a 3-5-person relay race.

This regional event showcases some of the country’s best athletes as they compete in a series of events that simulate the strenuous activity of a working structural fire. A team from the Courtenay Fire Department has been travelling to regional events across the country for the past six years. The team has hosted a successful Firefit event in 2019 and will now be competing in front of their home crowd again. This is a family friendly event where you will be able to come and support the firefighters as they show off what it takes to be and remain Firefit.
