Challenge to All Departments: Pull a Fire Truck for Charity

2016 PULLooza teams (1)

The 2017 Public Safety PULLooza is both the ultimate tug of war challenge and a great team-building event. The Plano Police, Plano Fire-Rescue and Public Safety Communications (Plano 9-1-1) departments invite you to be part of this fantastic fundraiser benefiting Special Olympics of Texas. Scheduled for Saturday, October 14, City departments have plenty of time to commit to this worthy cause.

The 2nd annual Public Safety PULLooza challenges you to create teams to compete in pulling a 72,000-pound fire truck over a 75-foot stretch. To win, your group simply needs to haul this hunk of metal in the fastest time. Teams must have 12 members and can be comprised of friends, coworkers, neighbors, gym buddies, etc. – all vying for an enormous trophy, a chance to help Special Olympics…and a year’s worth of bragging rights!

Area fire and police agencies, corporations, schools, cheerleaders and even local mascots competed in 2016, but only Plano’s library, 9-1-1, fire and police departments were represented. We can do better!

You can form a team or signup to be placed on an existing team. Teams are asked to raise a $300-registration fee. Individuals without teams can donate $25 in order to compete. Entrants receive t-shirts. Click here for details and entry forms.

PULLooza centers around the fire truck competition, but everyone is invited to enjoy the Public Safety Fair going on at the same time. There will be lots of demonstrations, games and activities for all ages:2017 PULLOOZA poster SMALL
