The Maryland Fire Chiefs Association is saddened by the loss of Associate Member FF/EMT Marcus Paxton. FF/EMT Paxton tragically passed away this morning after being involved in an automobile accident on his way to work.

FF/EMT Paxton has been a member of the MFCA since 2016. He worked fulltime for the Baltimore City Fire Department as an EMT and part-time for the Charles County Department of Emergency Services as a FF/EMT. He was also an active volunteer FF/EMT with the Middle River Volunteer Fire & Rescue Company and Lansdowne Volunteer Fire Department, both located in Baltimore County. In addition, he was an active member of the Bay District Volunteer Fire Department in St. Mary's County and the Calvert County Advanced Life Support Program.

FF/EMT Paxton is survived by his three children ages 6, 4 and 11 months. Please keep the Paxton family in your thoughts and prayers and respect their privacy as they take the time that’s necessary to grieve this devastating loss. We hope you join us as we extend our deepest condolences to his entire family during this difficult time.

Memorial arrangements will be posted once they are finalized.
