17 june 2023
Throughout the day, professional firefighters of the State Fire Service competed in the Toughest Firefighter contest. About 70 competitors had to face a demanding track and overcome several obstacles.

There were also lady firefighters who joined the Friday's competition, they were doing great on the track, competing with men. At the beginning, each contender had to run up to the 3rd floor with a 20-kilogram load, and then pull a fire hose on the rope. Once they run down, contestants had to face the break-door simulator, and in cover the slalom track between the hydrants. The penultimate task had firefighters drag a water-filled fire hose and hit the target with a water jet. The final stretch - this is when already tired firefighters had to drag the 80 kg dummy -  the finish line was several meters on. All participants had a time limit of 6 minutes to cover the entire track.  The winner, Rafał Bereza, representing KM PSP Chełm, covered the tasks set in 1'27" 32.

The competition for the Toughest Firefighter was organised by the Headquarters of the State Fire Services. On Saturday, the last day of the expo, firefighters associated in the Volunteer Fire Brigades take on a similar competition, but the obstacle track is a bbit easier.
