Columbus Fire vs Columbus Police
4th Annual First Responder Face-Off
Friends and co-workers on the streets, yet fierce competitors and opponents on the ice; the First Responder Face-Off™ pits the Columbus Fire Department against the Columbus Police Department in the annual charity hockey game. Up for grabs is the Buckeye Cup trophy and the bragging rights for the next year. These two teams leave it all out on the ice!
Proceeds from the event benefit the Hockey Helping Heroes™initiative of the First Responder Face-Off Foundation in support of First Responders across Central Ohio.
Your First Responder Face-Off ticket includes access to an interactive display of emergency vehicles, fire apparatus, SWAT vehicles, K9 and horse mounted patrol as well as First Responder personnel on the Northeast Plaza and on the Concourse of the Schottenstein Center. You won’t want to miss a special performance by the Columbus Police & Fire Pipes & Drums!
First Responder Face-Off tickets include admission to First Responder Night with Ohio State Hockey as the Buckeyes take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers at 6pm. Go Bucks!
Members of the Ohio State Men’s Hockey team visited the Columbus Police & Columbus Fire Training Academies ahead of the annual game to explore a day in the life of a Columbus Police Officer and Columbus Fire Fighter.
