Fire departments from across the state have been invited to field teams for the Salt Lake County Invitational Fire Muster - a water sports extravaganza planned for Saturday at Magic Waters, 14295 S. State St., Draper.
Fireman Jay Miles, director of public relations for the Salt Lake County Fire Department, said he expects at least 15 teams to vie for prizes and trophies at the event, which will start at 10 a.m."All the events will have something to do with water and most of the competition will be in the swimming pool," Miles said. "We'll have firemen competing in the `Fat Slide Bucket Splash,' `Tetrahedron Torcher Torture,' `Bonzai Blast' and many other events. Some contests will require firemen to dress in their full bunker (fire-fighting gear) in the water.
Miles said firemen's families and friends are invited to picnic at Magic Waters and enjoy the day's competition.
