100-m obstacle course

100m obstacle course competitions have following process:

a) a competitor with a stem stands at start line, without crossing it, stem position is not determined;

b) while racing the competitor overcomes a barrier, takes hoses, overcomes a beam, joints the hoses, approaches branching, connect hoses and lay it.

Overcoming barrier it is not allowed to step on stands and slopes. Hoses can be overtaken in any mode. It is allowed to joint couplings to each other, to hoses and to stem on spot, and on the move. If one jumps off the beam before beam finish line one should return and overcome it again. It is not allowed to move branching from its spot on track.

c) the track is considered complete if the competitor touches the imaginary finish strap with his body (except for his head, arms and feet);

d) the competitor is considered finished if he crosses the finish line with the whole body without assistance. If he crosses finish line and falls on the finish line, his result and order of completion may be kept, but only if he crosses the finish line immediately with the whole body;

e) after finish of track all couplings must be joint;

f) on the finish the competitor has to hold the hoses so that the judges can confirm accuracy of joint couplings of hose and stem, otherwise the result may not be considered as valid.

Climbing with the hook ladder into the window of a training tower
Climbing with a hook ladder a competitor might not use insurance devices. In this case he has to apply to the Panel of Judges with his agreement to perform without insurance devices. On participant's demand Competitions organizer must provide insurance devices.

The following rules have to be followed:

- a competitor takes his mark without touching the start line with his feet. It is allowed to hold on to the ladder with hand (-s) up to one's convenience. On Starter's signal the participant starts and climbs into floors in any mode, without hampering participants on other tracks; It is prohibited throw out the hook ladder while standing on a windowsill.

The competitor is considered finished if he touches the assaulted floor or contact pad with both feet.

Remark: this exercise is recommended to perform with the safety net. For safety net design see the addition to Supplement 4.

The race consists of four laps, each of which is 100 meters long. Each team member has a right to run one lap only. The stem is considered as a baton. To pass the baton it exists passing zone of 20 meters length. Determining factor here is position of the stem, not the competitor. The competitor taking the baton from previous one may start ten meters before the passing zone. The stem could be passed in any mode. The last competitor has to cross the finish line with the stem in his hand. In the case of falling of the stem during passing it, it may be picked up only by the passing competitor. If the pipe falls down on the neighboring track it is allowed to pick up without impeding other competitors. Otherwise the team may be disqualified.

The competitor who has passed on the baton (stem) to the next competitor may leave the track after making sure that he doesn't impends to other participants. Any help to the competitor on the lap is prohibited. Violated team should be disqualified.

Firefighting relay-race stages are as follows:

a) a competitor stands by start line with stem and pole ladder;

b) a competitor starts on Starter's signal or command. For next laps a competitor starts without additional command right after baton is passed;

c) first lap: A competitor runs up to the house (the hurdle), climbs up to the top of it with pole ladder, runs to the end of the roof, jumps down to the track so that he should reach the ground behind the limiting line. If he jumps down before the limiting line he has to return and overcome the hurdle again;

d) second lap: after the baton is passed second competitor should overcomes the barrier while it is not allowed to step on stands and slopes. As he jumps down fuel in the pan gets kindled;

e) third lap: the competitor takes the stem, runs up to hoses, takes them and overcomes the beam (carrying the pipe and the hoses), then runs up to the branching, joints hoses to it lays it. Hoses may be carried in any mode. Joining hoses with each other and joining it to stem may be performed on spot or on the run. Stem should be joint to hose before "uncoupling line", and should be uncouple after the line. Position of hoses after uncoupling of stem doesn't make difference. If the competitor jumps off the beam before the limiting line he has to return and overcome it again. When the stem is handed over to the 4th lap runner all coupling half nuts should be joint; No one is allowed to touch the hoses after the "Start" signal and the start pistol shot;

d) fourth lap: the competitor takes the stem, runs to fire extinguisher, takes it and extinguishes the burning pan. It is prohibited to leave the fire extinguisher in the pan after fire has been extinguished. Track Judge of fourth lap should set the extinguisher. If the fire can't be extinguished by one fire extinguisher, the competitor has to use back up one.

Finish: The task is completed if the competitor with the stem crosses the finish line and all fire in the pan and around it is extinguished.

In the International competitions all pans must be heated by burning 0, 25 liters of petrol before the first round has started.

Fire Attack
The discipline simulates very closely the operation during the intervention. There are seven competitors in a team. The team members put during preparation stage following equipment in base: fire pump, 3 hoses B, 4 hoses C, water divider, 2 branchpipes, 2 suction hoses and suction strainer. No equipment is allowed to cross the base line except the suction hoses. The water source is placed 4m from base and targets to be hit with water streams are placed 95m from base.

Team will prepare motor fire pump and other equipment for fire attack on the base. From referee´s command: "Na základnu!" ("On base!") is given 5 minutes period for preparation for the attempt. Within the period team must place motor fire pump and other equipment for the fire attack on the base. No support is allowed to assure the equipment against motion except the equipment intended for fire attack. Couplings are not allowed to touch each other. No equipment is allowed to cross the base line except the suction hoses and no equipment is allowed to touch the ground.

Motor fire pump is not allowed to start on the base. It must be turned off in start moment. After the start command is the team running from the starting line (all members from the same one), starting the motor fire pump, setting the feeding hoses (suction strainer must be screwed on before its immersion to water tank), transport hoses, attack streams and splashing both targets (approx. 10 litres).
