Episode 4 - Val De Sambre | CMC GRIMP North America Recap Mini-Series



In this CMC GRIMP North America 2022 recap, we are joined by Xavier Tournay of the Val De Sambre Team from Sambreville, Belgium. They discuss their experience as a small fire department participating in GRIMP and the unique terrain the Battleship IOWA provided throughout the competition.

Overheard from this episode:
“To compete on the battleship USS Iowa is an amazing experience.”
“For us, a very small fire department, it’s a one in a life experience.”
“It’s very positive, very positive for the listeners, the rescuers that want to be part of such an event in the future – they have to do it.”
