Results are in from Dallas, Texas where the "Firefighter Throwdown" was held last week during the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) - Fire/Rescue International (FRI) Annual Convention. All we can say is that the entire Department is "PGFD PROUD" for Prince George's County Fire Fighter/Medic Technician Katie Johnson. She placed a respectable 7th position overall against some pretty fierce competitors.
|Katie Johnson commented on her competition, "Great group of female firefighters in competition. These ladies are true athletes, happy they let me tag along." (Johnson in green shirt)|
There are more images and comments from Katie on her Facebook page.
