The city of Lubbock will soon see an influx of firefighters as the city prepares for the 2023 Firefighter Summer Games. The Lubbock Professional Firefighters Association has partnered with Lubbock Sports to present the 2023 Texas Firefighter Summer Games.
A press release from Lubbock Sports, the 2023 Texas Firefighter Summer Games are expected to bring about 800 to 1200 firefighters from across Texas as they showcase their skills. The games are designed to deliver a competitive but family oriented environment as the participants showcase their fitness, camaraderie, and sportsmanship. Some of those skills include archery, cornhole, bowling and even horseshoes, to name a few, but only if there are enough participants for those events.
