IAFF Fire Fighter to Be Featured on TRCP's "Escape to the Wild"
December 18, 2006 -- Brad Cummings, a member of Downer's Grove, IL Local 3234, won the adventure of a lifetime in an "Escape to the Wild" contest sponsored by the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership (TRCP) and Versus (formerly OLN) Television.
Cummings joined TRCP's "Escape to the Wild" host Marc Pierce for an all-expenses-paid waterfowl hunting trip in Alberta, Canada. His adventure will air on Versus in February 2007.
"Escape to the Wild" is part of a cooperative effort between a coalition of AFL-CIO unions, including the IAFF, Versus Television and TRCP. In May, Rocky Raimondi, a member of the Uniformed Firefighters Association of New York Local 94, became the first to win the all-expenses-paid trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for his dream fishing expedition.
More than 400 entries were submitted by union members to win an "Escape to the Wild" adventure.
