5-year-old challenges firefighters to suit-up races


PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG) — A 5-year-old from Georgia is blazing his own trail by challenging firefighters to see who can suit up in gear the fastest.

Noah Hensley is the reigning champion of suiting up in firefighter gear.

His dad said whenever they go on vacation, they stop by the local fire station to challenge a firefighter.

Noah has competed in suit-up competitions in Georgia, Florida and Tennessee.

On Tuesday, he met a firefighter for a rematch in Panama City Beach after beating him Sunday. Of course, Noah won again.

He was recognized with a challenge coin for rising to the occasion.

Noah says he wants to be a firefighter when he grows up and has about 80 toy fire trucks.
