Firefighters have a tough job — both fighting fires and at Can-Am Games

Firefighters work to extinguish a mobile home fire in Fairview Township on Tuesday. Fairview Township Police Officer Tim Dehoff said one of the trailer’s occupants told him he and his wife just had a new furnace installed. “He heard some popping noises and the next thing he knew, the whole ceiling was on fire,” Dehoff said.

Last week, I went out to two fires in York County — the first at a mobile home Fairview Township, and then, a couple hours later that morning, one at a home in East Manchester Township.

In both fires, rescue workers battled not only the flames, but the punishing temperatures. Joe Madzelan, a battalion chief with York Area Fire and Rescue, said the equipment firefighters carry is easily 50 pounds.

That’s no joke. Years ago, I volunteered to run the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenger event in York — which simulates some of the tasks firefighters have to do in their work. I was exhausted afterward, to say the least.

In fact, there are similar events going on all this week during the Can-Am Games as thousands of firefighters and police officers descend on York to compete. One of the events is the Toughest Firefighter event, sort of a decathlon for firefighters.

To give you an idea of the work firefighters do, here are two of my Touts from last week:
