Take the Safety and Health Week Sweepstakes Quiz
|Monday, 20 May 2013|
Entries accepted May 20 through June 18
The National Fire Protection Association is sponsoring the “Fire Service Safety & Health Quiz” Sweepstakes in conjunction with International Fire/EMS Safety and Health Week, which will be June 16-22, 2013. The theme of the week, and of the contest, is “Saving Our Own… An Inside Job.”
The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and the National Volunteer Fire Council (NFVC) are co-sponsoring this sweepstakes with NFPA. Career firefighters, volunteer firefighters, and other fire department employees and fire service members are invited to take the online, interactive quiz, featuring 15 questions related to firefighter health and safety.
“Raising awareness and education for firefighter health and safety is always a priority,” said Ken Willette, NFPA’s division manager of Public Fire Protection and a former fire chief. “This quiz is a quick and promising way to refresh fire service members’ knowledge and improve the safety of their teams.”
Check out this video message from Ken Willette encouraging firefighters to take the quz.
The quiz will be offered between May 20 and June 18 at www.nfpa.org/fireservicequiz. One sweepstakes entry will be given for a completed quiz through the Snapapp widget, with an additional entry if the quiz taker shares their result on Twitter.
On June 19, the 125 randomly selected winners will be announced. These winners will each receive a specially designed challenge coin commemorating this year’s International Fire/EMS Safety and Health Week. In addition, the winners’ names will be shared on the International Fire/EMS Safety & Health Week web site and select promotional materials.
