Guam - As part of Fire Prevention Week, emergency responders gathered today at the Paseo in Hagatna to take part in a friendly competition between federal and local firefighters. According to Naval Base Guam Fire Chief Rob Green, teams from each group showed their skills through competition. He says the event allows responders to work together as they do during emergencies.

"If we work together now and we see each other and we know each other then we get to emergencies when they're asking Naval Base Guam when we come out and help, we know them by names and say, 'Hey, how are you doing and let's just rescue these people and do what we need to do.' We go on the scene and we're familiar with who we are seeing and who we'll be working with."

Firefighters from Naval Base Guam, Andersen Air Force Base, the Guam International Airport Authority and the Guam Fire Department took part in today's event.
