The Larkspur Fire Muster, a traditional fire service competitive event, full story coming.
The Larkspur Fire Muster was a regional competition that ran for seven years, from 1978 to 1984. It attracted teams from Northern California, and featured events such as a firefighter obstacle course featuring multiple skills, a hose cart race that included antique equipment, using Larkspur's restored hose cart and the 1850 Austrian Hand Pumper, a barrel water fight, a 'make and break' hose coupling race, and the "Human Hose Clamp" hose extension evolution shown below. Also included in some years: A Chief's race with spouses, a pie-eating contest, a booster line pull race, and, during the drought, a contest to fill a bucket with dirt at a distance using a shovel and overhead throw. More information coming soon.
