August 5, 2022 – The Fire Apparatus Manufacturers’ Association (FAMA) awarded a scholarship to University of Maryland student Elliot M. Paisner II.
Lou Milanovich, FAMA Education Committee Chair, stated, “Elliot grew up fascinated by fire apparatus and equipment and is now a fourth-generation volunteer Fire Fighter/EMT. As a result of his passion and continued research of the fire protection industry, Elliot has developed an extensive personal library on the subject. His unwavering drive to serve within the fire protection industry is well deserving of a FAMA scholarship.”
Paisner serves as a volunteer Firefighter/EMT for Prince George’s County. He is dedicated to his career goal of becoming a Fire Protection Engineer where he can make an impact through life safety research and other aspects of fire that will support firefighters. Because of his fascination, Paisner is interested in many of the possible career opportunities and directions within fire protection. His ultimate career goal within fire protection is not defined, but Paisner’s thirst for knowledge and learning will support him in whatever direction he takes.
On behalf of FAMA, we wish Elliot Paisner a successful career in fire protection engineering.
