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.

Camp Connect Sponsors / Supporters

Now that Camp Connect is over for another year the Nova Scotia Fire Fighters Burn Treatment Society would like to take this opportunity to extend a very sincere "Thank You" to all the groups and companies that provided financial and camp logistical support during this years camp. Along with the many companies who gave generous financial support the campers were super thrilled to once again be a part of the motorcycle rally and thrilled to experience the visit and rides from the North Nova Jeep Club. All the support this year went a long way to provide the experience and funding that allows us to provide this type of program for both the youth and adults that attend our camp. Thank you very much for all you do!
