Fire Chief Magazine started this Cold Water Challenge face-off a few weeks ago to determine which leaders in the fire service industry completed the challenge first. NFPA's Lorraine Carli made it through the first round after voters thought she had completed her video before Robert Avsec. Now, she is up again against Vickie Pritchett.
For those new to the game, the face-off challenge is simple: vote for who you think took the challenge first; and Fire Chief will reveal the true order after the bracket is complete.
Their mission is also simple: give firefighters a reason to have a bit of fun and keep the challenge alive — and the associated donations made to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
Cast your vote on their website for Lorraine by the end of the week. She has been the face and voice of the National Fire Protection Association since 2006 as its vice president of communications; she now serves as its vice president of outreach and advocacy.
Lorraine is up against Vickie Pritchett in this round, who became involved in the fire service in 1997. She currently serves as the Director of Public Fire Protection with the National Fire Sprinkler Association.
