HOUSTON (WTNH) — In a new viral video, a Houston Fire Chief and a rookie went head-to-head to see who could get into full fire gear faster.

Over half-a-million people have watched the viral video on the fire station’s Facebook page to see if experience would win over youth, or if the young guy just had the speed to win the day.

Senior Houston firefighters checked both the chief and the rookie to make sure they were in complete gear, and didn’t miss any critical details.

The race was close, with one firefighter just barely beating out the other for the win. Who won?

The chief proved to the rookie why he’s the chief. He was able to get into full gear just seconds ahead of the rookie. Congratulations!
