What Is the Police-Fire Games?
The Can-Am Police-Fire Games’ mission is to promote physical fitness and camaraderie among and between law enforcement, fire, emergency, and protective service personnel and their agencies.
According to the Games’ history, the Can-Am Police-Fire Games started as the Northwest Police-Fire Games in 1977 when officials from two state police and fire games (Washington and Oregon) and a police-fire sports group from Western Canada formed an organization that organized and conducted a multi-sport event for police officers and firefighters on an annual basis. This continued until 1996.
Through aggressive marketing and tremendous interest from the law enforcement and fire fighting industry, the event grew so large that cities large enough to host the event were limited in northwestern U. S. and Western Canada. The group reorganized, renamed itself the Can-Am Police-Fire Games to better represent our athletes demographically.
To better reflect the broadened scope and nature of our eligible competitors the Can-Am Police-Fire Games Federation expanded its mission statement beyond that of police and fire services and included emergency responders and protective services. This demonstrates our commitment to including such agencies as Emergency Medical service providers; Homeland Security; Border Patrol, and Corrections officers to name a few.
