Each year almost 700 children and adults from around B.C. are admitted to the Burn, Trauma and Plastics Units at Vancouver General Hospital and BC Children’s Hospital suffering serious trauma.
The BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund provides life saving, life supporting, and life enriching services to them, and works to save all British Columbians from a similar trauma.
More than 4,000 professional fire fighters from 53 communities in British Columbia and the Yukon are building the Burn Fund’s vision. They dedicate their time and skills to support burn survivors and increase public awareness of fire and burn safety issues through the Burn Fund’s research, support and prevention programs.
The Burn Fund is the charitable arm of the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Association and was established as a registered charity in 1978.
