NFPA Staff Members Tackle Brain Teasers in Escape Room

NFPA staff, along with their significant others, are challenged with solving world problems at Escape Chambers in downtown Milwaukee.  Can they do it?

The Problem: An esteemed professor of modern world history is believed to be the mastermind behind a network of historical document thefts. An undercover team has been sent in to bring him down. The team must work quickly to gather the necessary evidence and get out before the professor returns from class and discovers them. Consequently, should the team fail, the US Government will disavow all information regarding this assignment and will issue burn notices. The team has 60 minutes………… The Problem: The TR-18 virus was created by a team of top military scientists…not as a weapon, but rather a research tool. However, an underground group of animal rights activists managed to infiltrate the facility and liberate all of the test subjects. Knowing that the facility has been compromised, the team must recover the genetic material, as well as the binding solutions. Without these components, there is no hope in synthesizing an anti-virus in time to save humanity from its impending fate. The team has 60 minutes to save the entire human race!
NFPA Staff - Group 1 NFPA Staff - Group 2
The Results: They nearly found the documents before time ran out…Looks like the bureau will be issuing a few new burn notices! The Results: These scientists couldn’t quite recover the elements that would lead to saving the world and everyone perished!

We may not have succeeded, but the teams worked together to solve the problems and had a blast trying!
