by Jolene Toves

Guam - Island heroes battled it out over the weekend as the Guam Fire Department hosted its annual Firefighter Muster Challenge. Fire Chief Joey San Nicolas said, "The bottom line of this event is to get all the fire departments that serve the public of Guam the community together to display our technical and physical attributes as well as our getting to know each other so that when the real runs happen we can get past the introductions and just get to work of serving and savings."

Federal, local and military firefighters competed in various physical contests.  Airman First Class Shamus Klemme is with Andersen Fire Department and said, "Pretty much this is just a friendly competition you get all the brothers together and its kind of like big brother little brother type challenge we just have fun and come out here and see whose the most fit."

On day one of the Muster Challenge the Andersen Fire Department took first place, while on Sunday Andersen tied with the Airport and Rescue Fire Fighting Unit for first place.
