The history and the present fire sport of professional firefighters in the South Bohemian Region
SEVERA, Marek
Fire sport is an integral part of the physical training of the members of regional fire brigade units. The aim of the work is to assess and evaluate the demands on athletes dealing with the fire-fighting sport in its beginnings and now in the South Bohemian region. The mapping of the beginnings of fire fighting sport in the Czechchoslovak Socialist Republic Czechoslovakia, Czech and Slovak Federal Republic, the Czech Republic and abroad is a necessary part of understanding the problem. The benefit of meeting important fire-fighting professionals in the South Bohemian Region is not only gaining valuable knowledge and experience, but above all a distinctive revival of memories and never-recorded facts. In order to find information about fire sport, qualitative research methods were used, namely analysis of available materials and resources, interviews and questionnaire survey between the former and current competitors of fire fighting in the South Bohemian Region. The results of the analysis of available materials and resources, as well as the questionnaire survey, showed a model presenting different results between competitors from earlier and from the present. The conclusions provided the answer to the research question, "What were the requirements on athletes of firefighting sport at its beginnings and what are they now? Requirements such as the time and physical demands of training, the quality of equipment and tools, used to be stricter in the past, the conditions for running a firefighting sport without available information and experience were more difficult than those currently required. The assessment of the development of fire sport since its beginnings in the 1970s to the present day in the South Bohemian region shows that there is a significant fall in the results of of the South Bohemian region's teams in national competitions. The proposal to improve performance in fire sport is to identify weaknesses and focus on their enhancement.
