Texas Firefighter Summer GamesHistory

In 1983, professional firefighters representing cities all across Texas began participating in various sporting events against other Texas Fire Departments. The Texas Firefighter Games was born and is now held annually in a “Host City” (rotating to a different “Host City” every year).  The Games are held starting the third Sunday of July each year and end on Friday of that week.

Firefighter athletes and their families attend the week-long event each year.

If you are a professional paid firefighter (sorry but no Volunteer Firefighters) in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas, we invite you to join the spirit of competitive fun and sign up for the next running of the Texas Firefighter Games!

In 2013, the Texas Firefighter Games were approved for a 501(c)(3), non-profit, status allowing us to further our mission.


To deliver competitive sporting events for participants and a family atmosphere while giving back to the community through various charitable organizations


The vision of the Texas Firefighter Games Board is to provide a family oriented environment to showcase health and fitness, camaraderie, sportsmanship, and the sharing of ideas among firefighters from across Texas and the surrounding states on a yearly basis and to continue to give back to each host city through contributions to local charity organizations.
