Columbus Fire vs Columbus Police
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.
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 of the Schottenstein Center. You won’t want to miss a special performance by the Columbus Police & Fire Pipes & Drums!
