New York (WENY) - It's not Sochi but it could be just as cold. The firefighter Winter Games are returning to upstate NY starting Friday.
    
More than 300 firefighters from 32 fire departments across New York state are expected to show up Friday in Cortland. It's supposed to be the largest field of competitors in nine-years. Participants dressed in full gear will compete in several competitions, including tube races, a sled pull, and a hose relay. The hose relay is a training ground that teaches firefighters how important it is to work together while fighting a fire.
