The tie breaker has been resolved and NFPA's Lorraine Carli now has a contestant to face for the championship.
Chief Dennis Rubin, a frequent and regular contributing author to FireRescue1 and Fire Chief, beat out Chief Ronald J. Siarnicki with a total of 61 votes versus his 46 votes.
For those new to the game, the face-off challenge is simple: vote for who you think took the challenge first; we’ll reveal the true order after the bracket is complete.
Our 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 below on which fire service leader you think completed the challenge first. At the end of the game, contest winners will be randomly selected and will receive a FireRescue1 T-shirt and challenge coin as a prize.
