Niagara Falls Firefighter Paul Emmick Takes on World’s Strongest Firefighter Challenge

With a 20-year background in power lifting and strongman training, Emmick has honed his strength, which is essential in his role at the fire department.


Becoming a firefighter two years ago allowed him to fulfill a personal aspiration of assisting those in need. This passion to make a difference was ignited following his brother's death from a drug overdose in 2015.


Contestants in the World's Strongest Firefighter event must demonstrate strength by lifting 250 pound kegs and sand bags above their heads.


Good luck, Paul!!
