GREENSBORO, N.C. -- There's a world championship for firefighting, and a group of Greensboro firefighters are competing for the title!
Five Greensboro Firefighters will travel to compete at the Firefighter Combat Challenge World Finals in Louisville, Kentucky from October 23-28.
Greensboro Assistant Fire Chief Dwayne Church says the team will compete in an obstacle course that involves climbing multiple flights of stairs, hauling heavy hose packs, carrying a 175-pound dummy, and much more - in full firefighter gear!
Team member Andy Weldon says this is the team's second year going to finals. He says last year, the women on their team won a national title.
The team members are Bruce Fields, Hannah Johnson-Hill, Temeka Brown, Cameron Williams and Andy Weldon.
Good luck, Greensboro firefighters!
