New York firefighters recently competed in a game of dodgeball in full gear for an air consumption drill.

 It was the Scottsville Fire Department against the Caledonia Fire Department.

 They wanted to show firefighters how to control breathing in stressful situations.

 Each firefighter played until they drained their air cylinder. Times ranged from 25 minutes to 51 minutes.

 And if anyone got out during the game they had to do 20 jumping jacks before they could return.
