Members of USF’s Greek community recently competed to determine who has the best firefighting skills – and while they didn’t have to put out a fire, they had to complete some of the other physically demanding tasks that real firefighters have to do. See what charity benefited on University Beat on WUSF TV.
About 400 members of USF’s Greek system braved a cool and wet November day to see who had the best firefighting skills. On this week's University Beat on WUSF 89.7, hear how much money the competition raised for a memorial for Tampa firefighters who have died in the line of duty.
