The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue department's Advanced Life Support Team finished first at the 2011 Bill Shearer International ALS/BLS Competition, which was held July 8 as a part of the ClinCon 2011 Conference in Orlando, Fla. This year's scenario featured mass casualty incidents, critical airway emergencies, toxic syndromes, trauma, and pediatric emergencies.

It is considered the "Super Bowl" of ALS competitions. More than 40 teams from across the country competed.

This was their second championship in the past three years in this competition, according to the department's July 14 news release.
