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.

He is also a member of the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 268 Executive Board. He brings a lot of enthusiasm and ideas which is greatly appreciated by the Society. We are looking forward to a long term working relationship with him. Welcome aboard Casey!

The 2019 37th Annual Bowlarama For Burn Care Package Available Now!

The 2019 Bowlarama For Burn Care entry package is available now. We have mailed the packages out but if you don't want to wait or (for some reason) you did not receive one, they are also  availabe by clicking here. Procedes form this event go to the initiatives the Society undertakes on an annual basis. More information on what the Society does is available in the menu under About Us.

This year we have changed the prize packages to reward YOU for all your efforts in supporting the Society in its programs for burn survivors. The two new top main prizes include an oceanfront cottage weekend vacation for two at White Point Beach Resort with all meals included (SEA'scape package) and a Saturday night getaway in the luxorious Prince Suite at the Prince George Hotel including the Prince George's famous Sunday Brunch for two. A complete list of the new prizes is available in the package.

Of course "Scooby" will be back up for auction. Teams should come prepared as the Living Lighting group are not likely to give it up easily!

Along with the Spryfield Bowlarama we want to send a huge thank you to the Prince George Hotel and White Point Beach Resort for their generosity in helping make these prize packages available for this event.
