The competition was heating up at the 19th Annual Sturgeon County Firefighter Olympics.
Today (August 12), Morinville hosted firefighters from four county departments and three town departments.
The firefighter olympics held seven different events involving all aspects of firefighting — such as rescue games and obstacles—and utilized all of the tools the fire departments use in emergency situations.
Morinville, Legal, Gibbons, Bon Accord, Calahoo and Namao are taking part in today's friendly competition.
"It's just a way to get to know each other better, work with our partners and some great team building, promoting just a bunch of fun for everyone," explained Morinville Fire Chief, Brad Boddez
First, second and third place will be crowned this evening at the steak dinner.
Morinville took home last year's first place and most sportsmanlike award.
