President's Message

"I am honored to serve as President of FABSCOM. I am grateful to be part of an organization that is dedicated to public safety and promoting fire and burn safety education for the citizens of Maryland. FABSCOM pledges their support to the Office of the State Fire Marshal to assist them in making Maryland a safer place to live, work, and visit. On behalf of all of us I am pleased to say that our biggest initiative, the Mid Atlantic Life Safety Conference, has been a very successful event due to the year long commitment of the public and life safety professionals that sit on that committee. 

We look forward to assisting the Office of the State Fire Marshal promote their two newest initiatives the Close the Door Campaign and get Alarmed Maryland. In addition we are teaming up with super hero Flash Max to help get the word out to the younger audiences in a way they can relate to. FABSCOM welcomes new members from public education, prevention, and the private sector who share in our mission..."To promote fire and burn safety education for the citizens of Maryland."
