Le Mars Fire Department Hosts Water Fight Competition

(Le Mars) -- Nine different fire departments with 128 participants competed in the Le Mars Fire and Rescue Department's water fight held Sunday afternoon. There were 15 mens leader line teams with Storm Lake one taking top honors.  The leader line involves three individuals with the first fire fighter attaching the hose to a water source and turning on the water, the second helps carry the hose and assists with keeping the hose straight, and the third fire fighter has to go through an obstacle course and shoot the water at a football.  The other water fight had 29 mens teams and six women's teams.  Teams of two people would grab a hose and aim the water at a barrell that was on a cable above their heads.  The object was to push the barrell, with the water, past your opponets.  Hull Fire Department won the men's water fights, with Storm Lake women taking top honors in the women's category.  Le Mars women won second and third place in the water fights.   Fire Chief Dave Schipper says the competition is fun, but it also helps with sharpening the fire fighter's skills.
