Here is my version of the National Fallen Firefighter's Foundation "Cold Water Challenge". The concept is to challenge five of your friends in order to raise money for a charity of your choice. Instructor Mike Word and myself were challenged by two firefighters in Mississippi; Chris Johnson (Southaven FD) and Mike Hancock (Walls FD). If you accept the NFFF cold water challenge you donate $10 to the NFFF. If you do not accept you are supposed to donate $100 to the NFFF. I decided to challenge the Alabama Fire College, TEEX Fire and Emergency Training, South Carolina Fire Academy, LSU Fire and Emergency Training Institute, and John Russell of the Mississippi State Fire Marshall's Office. We had a great time participating in this event and look forward to more of them.
Here are some pictures from our challenge:
