Petal firemen to compete in Combat Challenge World Championship

Five Petal firemen will be competing in the World Championship in the Scott Safety Firefighter Combat Challenge in November.

This comes after a three man team qualified in July at a competition in Montgomery Alabama.

The team is made up of Lt. Carlton Sims, T.J. Burkhalter, Richie Steele, Greg Crowder, and Gerald Watts.

In the competition the team must complete a grueling course in less than two minutes. The combat challenge is called the toughest two-minutes in sports.

The team will next compete in a regional competition in October in Tyler Texas to prepare for the world championship which will be held in Myrtle Beach South Carolina in November.
