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 becoming a member of the Society, or wish to contribute to our efforts financially, please feel free to contact us.

NSFFBTS's Camp Connect Sends 2 To An International IAFF Camp For Burn Survivors In The United States.

Camp Wabanna is a week long camp for burn survivors operated by the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) located in Edgewater, Maryland, USA. It is a one of a kind experience for young burn survivors to mingle and attend events with others their age that have suffered burn injuries.

Every year the NSFFBTS sends a camper and councellor from our own Camp Connect to this international camp in the US. Costs for the trip and camp are covered by the IAFF. This year Camp Connect camper Dale MacNeil attended the camp with retired Halifax Fire Captain and NSFFBTS Treasurer, Jim Benoit. Check out just some of the activities during Dale's week long experience ...
