Awareness Days

Burn Awareness Week

Monday, February 1st - Sunday, February 7th 2016

Burn Awareness Week is designed to provide an opportunity for burn, fire and life safety educators to unite in sharing burn awareness and prevention messages out in their communities. This year the focus is on scalds – as many of these injuries are happening to children in the kitchen and bathroom.

The American Burn Association, made up of 3,500 members around the world, is dedicated to promoting and supporting burn-related research, education, care, rehabilitation and prevention.
