Dear Burn Fund Supporter:
Since 1974 the Saskatchewan Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund has raised over $6 million to purchase equipment for our two provincial state of the art Burn Units; one at the Regina General Hospital and one at the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon. We also fund the Saskatchewan Professional Fire Fighters Hyperbaric Chamber at the Moose Jaw Union Hospital.
The Burn Fund provides continuing education for doctors and nurses in burn care and treatment, along with funding public awareness campaigns on burn prevention and safety and sending children to burn camp on a yearly basis. Our goal is to make a stay in the Burn Unit as short and as comfortable as possible. All funds raised in the province stay in the province for the purpose of fulfilling our mandate of burn care and treatment to the citizens of Saskatchewan.
As Fire Fighters, we know all too well how burn injuries change lives. The scars, both physical and mental, last a lifetime. It is our goal to do all we can to reduce the pain and suffering of those who fall victim to burn injuries as well as preventing these types of accidents through public education.
The individuals that appear in our calendar are real Fire Fighters, everyday heroes who risk their lives to save the lives and properties of total strangers. These Fire Fighters are donating their time to help increase awareness of the need for burn research and public education. For more information on the Burn Fund or to make a donation contact the Fire Fighters Burn Fund online at www.burnfund.ca
On behalf of the 733 Professional Fire Fighters across the province, I would like to thank you for supporting our calendar fundraiser and count on your continued support in the future. Remember, “After the burning has stopped…the caring continues.”
