Firefighter Challenge part of the Tattoo

Local Firefighters will have a chance to show their stuff at the Okanagan Miltary Tattoo 2014.  Two vintage Hose Reels have been located in the area, one from the O’Keefe Ranch and one from the Coldstream Ranch.  Both were in use in the late 1800s.  Teams of four from local Fire Halls will compete in coupling 200′ of fire hose, loading it on to the hose reels then running an obstacle course to the finish line.  Following an elimination process mid-July, the final two teams will compete in a semi-final at the Friday, August 1st evening performance and the final will be at the Saturday, August 2nd matinee performance.
