World Firefighters Games 2008



Liverpool was the place to be for Firefighters in 2008 as Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service proudly played host to the 10th World Firefighters Games! The Games were a mini Olympics for Firefighters and a fantastic opportunity for Firefighters across the world to get together and compete in the 67 events that were on offer.

The Games ran from 24 August – 3rd September 2008 and over 5,000 competitors and their families streamed into the city to join in the fun. The emphasis of the games focused on fun, family, friendship and everyone having a great time!
