Welcome to “Back Step Talks” inaugural edition, a product of the Maryland Fire Chiefs Association Safety and Health Committee. The purpose of this bulletin is to share information to keep each and every firefighter and EMS provider in this state safe and well physically, mentally, and emotionally. We ask that you print this newsletter out for your station as well as share it on social media. Together, through education and helping one another we can make a difference. If you are interested in assisting with this project, please reach out to our committee chair Dave Lewis.
