Most burns are preventable.
While the Burn Fund will do everything possible to give burn survivors the best possible chance at recovery, we prefer to help prevent such life-altering trauma from ever occurring.
Each year an estimated 9,000 children in Canada visit hospital emergency room for burns and close to 1,000 are hospitalized as a result of these injuries. Approximately 120 children will die from their injuries each year.
Through school curriculum, education materials and community activities the Burn Fund, and its professional fire fighter members, are committed to increasing public awareness of potentially dangerous situations, and how they can be avoided.
