The team just returned from the Firefit National Championship that were held at Spruce Meadows in Calgary, Alberta. The Nationals had over 200 firefighters from across Canada competing. Oakville Fire Department’s Team Levitt-Safety travelled with eight team members and had the largest team at the event.
It was a grueling five days of competition but when the dust settled, Oakville Fire Department’s Team Levitt-Safety came out on top with their second National title – and their first National title in the prestigious Team Category! They nearly broke the team record, coming in just four seconds short of it.
