The Prince George's County Police Department describe their Special Operations Division Iron Team Competition as, “a test of true grit and teamwork that will push competitors to the limits.” This year, 35 teams accepted the challenge, including the only fire department entry from the Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department (PGFD). Team PGFD was just 1 of 2 co-ed teams competing.
On the morning of September 25, 2013, the four-person teams faced obstacles that tested their physical and mental strength. The competition was open to law enforcement, fire personnel and members of the military. This years event was even more challenging with several new obstacles, including a Ranger Crawl, Keg Throw and Climb, Pyramid Team Tire Flip and Stone Flip.
Team PGFD proved to be very competitive placing 31st. Katie Johnson, Anna LaGrave, Mike Adams, and Jake Gigliotti made up Team PGFD with Sara Shaffer working with the team as a volunteer assistant.
Congratulations to Team PGFD and all teams that competed.
