For nearly two weeks this June, police, firefighters, military personnel, federal agents, and emergency medical personnel will meet in The Palm Beaches to compete in the First Responder Games.

Scheduled to take place from June 3-17, 2024, the First Responder Games is an Olympic-style competition that will take place across various sports venues throughout Palm Beach County. This multi-sport event will attract over 3,500 first responders from across the nation, competing in approximately 30 different sports. Events will include basketball, softball, soccer, flag football, golf, ice hockey, fishing, archery, tennis, pickleball, swimming, volleyball, bowling, billiards, darts, racquetball, sporting clays, powerlifting, and cycling.

The First Responder Games will create a significant tourism and economic impact for Palm Beach County. With most participants traveling and requiring hotel accommodations, the Palm Beach County Sports Commission projects that this event will generate over 2,000 hotel room nights. This influx of visitors is estimated to create an economic impact of over $2.6 million through direct visitor spending.
