Can-Am Police-Fire Games

Tbaytel invests in people and organizations to build strong and healthy communities. That’s why Tbaytel is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the Can-Am Police-Fire Games, an event taking place in Thunder Bay this summer that promotes physical fitness and camaraderie among emergency and protective services.

  • Strengthening Relationships

    Local correctional officer Scott Giertuga was happy to hear the Games were being held in the city this year. “I’ve been running for 25 years and I’m quite competitive,” he admits. “My brother Warren participated in the Toughest Competitor Alive competition a few years ago and his experience was very positive – he made friends from all over North America. It’s great that it’s happening in Thunder Bay.”

  • Building Team Spirit

    With just four years under her belt at Superior North EMS, Summer Aichinger has the opportunity to be part of the Games at home in Thunder Bay. “It’s fun to compete against our colleagues that we work with on a day-to-day basis but don’t really get the chance to know,” Summer says, “plus, paramedic numbers are relatively small compared to fire and police and it’s good to see our paramedics out there being physically active and enjoying themselves.”

  • Embracing Athleticism

    Frank has been training full force since January to score big in the Toughest Competitor Alive. “It’s a good chance to get back in shape and resume real training,” he says, “but I’ve also chosen some `lighter’ events to get to know people under less intense circumstances — like on the bocce court with guys from the department on Team Italia, or over the billiards table.”

  • Building a Service Community

    George is a first-time games participant and having a great time training: building relationships with guys from other fire halls on a softball team, battling it out with his doubles tennis partner, and creating a four-person golf scramble with 2 Fire and 2 OPP officers – aptly named Guns + Hoses. “What’s not to like?” remarks George. “We’re improving our physical fitness, and mentally it helps to blow off steam playing sports. And my kids think it’s great – I ran the Fire Fighters 10 Mile Road Race with my daughter! She’s 12.”
