DIARY NOTE


FIREFIGHTERS CONVERGE ON TWEED HEADS FOR THE 

2010 NSWFB STATE FIREFIGHTER CHAMPIONSHIPS


21 October 2010


From 23 -

28

October, around 500

firefighters from across NSW, Queensland, Victoria and New

Zealand will head to Tweed Heads for the bi-annual State Firefighting Championships, the one of the

NSW Fire Brigade’s (NSWFB) proudest and longest running traditions. 


Over five days of competition, firefighters will showcase the skills and expertise modern firefighters

use every day, whether attacking a fire or responding to a major emergency.


More than 40 teams of firefighters will compete in 16 firefighting related events designed to test the

firefighting skills of the NSWFB’s retained, or part-time, firefighters. This includes 12 teams from the

NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS), Queensland Fire and Rescue Service (QFRS), the Victorian Country

Fire Authority and the New Zealand Fire Service will also travel to Tweed Heads to compete. 


The 2008 State Champions, Nowra Fire Brigade, will be out to retain its title, however the team from

Kelso will be hard to beat after consistently solid performances at regional Championship titles during

2009-10.
