Dear FireRescue1 Member,

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that long-time EMS1/FireRescue1 columnist and contributor, Bryan Fass, has passed away. Bryan was a passionate advocate for fitness, wellness and readiness for emergency responders. In a tribute to Bryan, EMS1.com Editor-in-Chief Greg Friese writes, “Bryan always challenged us to be our best selves. He wanted us to be fit, ready, focused and attuned to our bodies.”

Our thoughts are with all of Bryan’s family, colleagues and everyone he touched.
