Firefighting teams from the Guam Airport Fire Rescue, Guam Fire Department, Naval Base Guam Fire Department, Saipan Airport aircraft rescue and Andersen Air Force Base competed in the annual Guam Fire Muster March 5-6, in Hagåtña, Guam. The competition tests a firefighter’s ability to perform basic firefighting techniques to include spraying a target with water, navigating through obstacles, carrying a casualty and using a sledgehammer. The obstacles simulate the challenges firefighters could face when responding to an emergency.
