    Lewisville Fire Department is presently in FIRST PLACE to win $1,000 cash for the fastest equipment assembly and don. Their score is 1:17.41.

    A video of their equipment don can be found online at: YouTube - International Public Safety Diver Challenge - Equipment Assembly and Don

    Their surface swim time was 3:32.53 and a 30 second bonus for wearing dry suits gave them a total score of 3:02.53

    With a combined total of 4:19.94 the Lewisville Fire Department team is in FIRST PLACE to win a $500 travel stipend to compete in the "International Finals" and attend the International Public Safety Diving Conference in Charlotte, NC. Because they scored first place overall in the regional even in Austin the $700 conference fee has been waived and they can compete in the "Finals" where they can win dry suits, full face masks, cash, and other great prizes.

    Yea Lewisville!

    Although I don't know those particular guys in the video I gotta pull for them. Chief Lasky is a class act. His dept & city host the only pipeband symposium for firefighters (I'm gonna miss it this year :depressed: ). If the dive team is anything like their band then I'd say they have the competition locked up!
