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.

NSFFBTS Partners With Narrows 9 Dragons For The 1st Annual Porters Lake Dragon Boat Festival

We are pleased to announce the first annual Porters Lake Dragon Boat festival offered to all Firefighter’s and their families on Saturday July 13th. Narrows 9 Dragons have partnered
with Waters Edge Patio Grill located at 122 Post Office Rd. Porters Lake to host the event. Food and drinks will be available during the races which will begin at noon. We have arranged live music with Chad Doucette 3rd runner up in the 2006 edition of Canadian Idol and the band “Second Helping”. Tickets will be $30 per person. The ticket includes a Dragon burger or Dragon hotdog (bacon wrapped hotdog with pineapple and teriyaki sauce), a cold beverage (14oz Draught) or soft drink, a festival t-shirt and one dragon boat practice before the festival.

The Nova Scotia Fire Fighters Burn Treatment Society will be the exclusive charitable partner for this event. Together we will raise money for the work the NSFFBTS does through corporate donations, sponsorships and/or companies who wish to compete in the actual races themselves.

Teams can be made up to a maximum of 20 paddlers and a drummer per boat. A full boat is ideal but you would be able to compete with a minimum of 12 participants. Teams can consist of Firefighters from any station or shift, as well as spouses, family and children aged 13 and older. For those with children between ages 4-12 we will have our day camp counsellors run activities and provide child care at our 9 Narrows Lane location a few kilometers from the race site. Fee for child care for the duration of the event is $20.

Please contact Trevor Marshall for ticket purchases and team entries at
(902)478-3242 or with any questions. We accept email transfer or cash. There are only 200 tickets to be sold so get your entries in ASAP.
