The “Fire Service Safety Stand Down Quiz” Sweepstakes is back as part of the annual Safety Stand Down campaign! The sweepstakes is hosted by NFPA along with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), and consists of an interactive online quiz that emphasizes the importance of the 2017 Safety Stand Down theme, “Mayday, Self Rescue & Rapid Intervention.”
The NFPA, IAFC and NVFC are asking career firefighters, volunteer firefighters, EMTs and other fire service personnel to take the 2017 quiz, which will be available June 12 through June 24 at www.nfpa.org/fireservicequiz. The quiz contains 17 questions related to “Mayday” situations and the response tactics required when rescuing a trapped firefighter.
Everyone who completes the quiz will be automatically entered into the sweepstakes; 200 randomly selected participants will win a specially designed challenge coin commemorating this year’s Safety Stand Down theme.
Safety Stand Down is a joint initiative of the IAFC and NVFC. Formerly called International Fire/EMS Safety and Health Week, the educational and awareness initiative takes place June 18-24. With this year’s theme, members of the fire and emergency services are encouraged to review self-rescue strategies and protocol for rescuing trapped firefighters that week. This year’s campaign and training refreshers apply to chiefs, incident commanders, company officers, and firefighters.
