|When Innovation meets Sports|
POK® is proud to offer sponsorship to sport related activities and groups. The company particularly engages with sports played by firefighters. Currently, we are supporting Team 18 Sapeurs-Pompiers and various Firefighter Combat Challenge events.
Team 18 Sapeurs-Pompiers
Team 18 was set up by a small group of firefighters who shared a common passion for motocycle racing. Based in different counties in France, they come together to compete in 2 of the most prestigious races of the Endurance World Championdhip FIM (International Federation of Motorcycling): the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France and the Bol d'Or in France.
Team 18 finished 2nd of the World Championship in 2009. Part of the success of the team is the ability of its members to utilise their professionnal skills during the races; notably their discipline, their stamina, their rapidity and their strong fighting spirit; all values that makes POK proud to have offered its support to Team 18 for the last 10 years.

Firefighter Combat Challenge
The Firefighter Combat Challenge is a competition in which firefighters from all around the world compete in timed events either individually or in teams to complete, with the full uniform on, a trail simulating the real challenges encountered during an emergency call. Founded in 1991 by Dr. Paul Davis and initially set up for the training of newly recruited firefighters in the USA. The Firefighter Combat Challenge is also known as the toughest two minutes, a name derived from the deadline set up for new recruits to achieve to be able to join a local unit.
POK's engagement to the Firefighter Combat Challenge is not solely limited to sponsorship, our engineers also specifically designed the Victory for this competition. Victory is a hand nozzle known for its robustness, high accuracy, low weight and easy handling; the perfect product to save valuable seconds on the way to the finish line for your training as well as for the competition.
All world records can be found on the official website of the Firefigher Combat Challenge.
