A competition in Guam ended with the CNMI Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting and the CNMI Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services each bringing home an award from the “Firefighter Muster 2017.”
The Commonwealth Ports Authority’s ARFF and the DFEMS each brought home a golden perpetual axe after besting the Andersen Air Force Fire Department, U.S. Navy Fire Department, Guam Fire Department, and the Guam Aircraft Rescue Fire Department.
According to ARFF’s Cody Norita, it was the first time for both agencies to bring home the awards.
The competition was held at the Hagatña Shopping Center last April 22 and 23 and included fire truck pull, team relay course, solo relay course, firefighter water polo, and bucket brigade.
The CPA ARFF won first in Platoon B, which was held on the first day of the competition, while CNMI DFEMS placed first in Platoon A, which was held the following day. (Erwin Encinares)
