While it may not be a competition like Guns & Hoses, any competition between cops and firefighters is always entertaining.

There's always some kind of friendly rivalry between firefighters and police departments. Whether it's a softball game, Guns & Hoses, or just the random smack-talking, cops and firefighters always go back and forth as to which department is better. That's no different when it comes to what is going on in Boonville, Indiana. The police department and fire department are going head to head in a competition that will help out a lot of folks in the community.
