Joseph Absher pose for a photo after winning first place in the relay portion of the 408th Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge, Sept. 20, 2015, Ontario, California. The challenge began as a university-based research study and has since evolved into a five-event obstacle course, simulating the physical rigors of structural firefighting. Following the local competition, the team will move on to compete against crews from all over the globe -- in the world challenge, held in Montgomery, Ala., Oct. 19 through 24. (Courtesy photo)
