Next week is Burn Awareness Week, an event organized by the British Columbia Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund
Jeffrey Minhinnick is with the Terrace Fire Department, and says this year they’re raising awareness on scalding burns.
He says children are much more vulnerable to burns than adults.
There are a number of events throughout the week for school-aged children.
The Burn Fund provides a number of services to those who have suffered burns and for their families.
The Burn Centre provides accommodations for out of town families while they’re in Vancouver for medical visits, and they also run a summer camp for young burn survivors.
