Battle of the Badges

Senior Airman Christian Torres, 502nd Civil Engineer Squadron firefighter, performs an inversion technique during the repelling demonstration portion of the 2015 Battle of the Badges Sept. 12, 2015, at the Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas Camp Talon Fire Training Area. This year’s Battle of the Badges was comprised of three main events for time: a tactical shooting challenge, firefighter combat challenge and fire truck pull. In addition the traditional challenges, this year’s event gave both defenders and firefighters the opportunity to show case parts of their missions with repelling, military working dog and Taser demonstrations.
