  Fastest firefighters-Air Force Academy team sets world record    

  LAS VEGAS, NV, USA--During the 2009 Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge, an Air Force Academy team (Airman 1st Class Jessica Morehouse and Stacey Billapando, from the Colorado Springs, Colo., Fire Department) ended with a time of 1:52.33 in the female relay event-setting the new world record for the Fastest female firefighters .

   This new world record time was more than 18 seconds faster than their nearest competitors.

   "I'm so excited; it was a clean, seamless run and everything went right for us," said Airman 1st Class Jessica Morehouse of the Academy Fire Department.

  Airman Morehouse teamed up with Stacey Billapando, from the Colorado Springs, Colo., Fire Department, to break their old tandem record set the first day of the event with a time of 1:59.

   "We're getting faster every time and this is the best shape all of us have been in," said Mrs. Billapando.

    The Academy team raced against firefighters from around the world in five events that simulate real on the job situations.

    Setting records is nothing new to this team. Mrs. Billapando and Airman Morehouse first broke the womens' tandem world record at the firefighter challenge regionals in Omaha, Neb., with a time of 2:06.22. Their next closest competitors clocked in at 3 minutes and 16 seconds.
    A week later, the two set another world record with a time of 2:00.78 at the nationals in Arlington, Texas. This time they finished 40 seconds ahead of their closest competitors.

  
 For firefighters, the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge is akin to the Olympics.

   The competition is a chance for them to test their physical fitness in an obstacle course that simulates some of the challenges firefighters see on the job. They haul water-filled hoses, drag mannequins and run up flights of stairs in full gear.

  To make the event even more challenging, participants wear their full "bunker gear," including an air-breathing apparatus, throughout the competition.

   "This contest actually simulates what they do on the job and they can see how they compare to other teams," said Brittany Davis, a firefighter combat challenge event coordinator.
