National Burn Awareness Week takes place annually in the first full week of February. The 2020 theme is: Contact Burns – Hot Surfaces Damage Skin!
To promote Burn Awareness Week, the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund in collaboration with BC Children’s Hospital hosts an info booth with tips and resources for families. Focusing on toddlers, who account for 74 per cent of burn injuries in British Columbia, the Burn Fund highlights survivor stories and promotes the Too Hot for Tots! program to help keep children safe.
