Firefighters are ambassadors for the event and a HUGE part of Stairclimb's culture.
Whether you are just joining us or seasoned veteran, please familiarize yourself with event registration, team captain's role, and equipment/bottle guidelines.
Climb one of Vancouver's tallest buildings, challenge yourself and do it for a good cause.
Registration is only $50 for firefighters!
Please be prepared to race in full firefighter gear:
- Coat (with liners intact)
- Helmet (hoods will not be worn)
- Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) will be worn and used througout the entire Stairclimb.
Each participant in the Firefighter division must wear gear that meets current National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) structural firefighting standards.
Unfortunately, no bottle changes are available.
In previous years, all of our competitors have been able to climb the 48 floors with one bottle. Please let us know if special arrangements need to be made.
Please arrive 1/2 an hour prior to check-in and pick up your timing chip and race number. Please make sure you are suited up and ready to climb when your Wave is called!
If you are sharing gear with another firefighter, please try to transfer as quickly as possible to keep all the Climbers moving!
