Help Us Help Survivors Of Burn Injuries

Our programs are only available through the generous support of donors like you. Help us make a difference!

Each year Nova Scotia Fire Fighters respond to thousands of emergency calls. Fire fighters respond to the problem as quickly as possible, but the commitment and dedication to the injured does not end when the emergency is under control and trucks are back in the station.

Incorporated by local fire fighters in 1983, the Nova Scotia Fire Fighters' Burn Treatment Society is a non-profit charity that has contributed burn care equipment and educational materials to our local hospitals, assisted burn survivors with post hospital care, and supported burn survivors with their ongoing issues as they continue the long struggle to recover physically and emotionally. The reward is immeasurable as we witness milestone moments in a survivors long road to recovery.

If you want to learn more about us and perhaps interested in becoming a member of the Society please feel free to contact us.

The 2020 Amherst Curling Bonspiel hosted by the Amherst Fire Department in support of the NSFFBTS will be held February 21 & 22 at the Amherst Curling Club, 45 Prince Arthur St, Amherst. Along with all the fun, thewre will be prizes, live music, and food. To register, contact NSFFBTS Director Tm Betts at
