On May 11, local first responders will suit up for the George Maloof 2024 Las Vegas Police vs. Fire Charity Football game. The game reinforces some healthy competition between local police officers and firefighters. Firefighters claimed victory in last year's game. "These young men have put a lot of work into it. They're going to show up and give it their all, and we'll decide about 10 o'clock Saturday on who gets to talk smack for the next year," joked retired firefighter Nino Galloway. Organizers emphasize that aside from the rivalry, more importantly, the game supports several local causes including the Law Enforcement Assistance Fund (LEAF), which supports the families of fallen officers. Proceeds also go to the Children's Heart Foundation and the Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation.
