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 are interseted in joining the Society or wish to contribute financially, please feel free to contact us.



 

Huge Donation!

Halifax to Host the 2018 Canadian Burn Survivors Conference
Burn injuries are nothing like a regular injury. The scars are permanent, often requiring successive surgeries throughout a survivors life and, the emotional trauma can last a lifetime. Every two years the Canadian Burn Survivors Community puts on a three day conference for survivors of burn injuries, usually in a different province across Canada. The purpose of the event is to bring burn survivors together from across Canada (and some from the US) to learn how to deal with their physical and emotional trauma as a result of their injuries and, to learn about new technologies and treatments available to aid them in their healing process. It is also a chance for survivors to come together and share the impact their injuries have had on their lives.

This year the Nova Scotia Fire Fighters' Burn Treatment Society and the Cape Breton Fire Fighters Burn Care Society are jointly hosting the 2018 Canadian Burn Survivors Conference at the Prince George Hotel in Halifax, June 27 - 30.
