NFPA President Jim Pauley and other members of the senior staff took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge this morning at NFPA headquarters in Quincy, MA -- and challenged other organizations to take the plunge!


Members of NFPA's senior staff, including President Jim Pauley, this morning took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a fundraising effort for the ALS Asociation, which is leading the fight to treat and cure ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease). Before the icy water was dumped over their heads, the senior staff threw down the guantlet to 10 other organizations to participate in the fundraiser.
