• Testimonial

  • “I was in an auto accident in 2005 in which I sustained third and fourth degree burns over 50% of my body. I was given a 3% chance of survival. The Firefighters Burn Institute has helped me immensely on my road to recovery. Had it not been for Cliff Haskell’s vision to bring a burn center to the Sacramento area there is a very likely little chance I would be here. I have been truly blessed to have the Firefighters Burn Institute, its staff and leadership, who have supported my recovery and given me the opportunity to give back to others going through circumstances similar to mine.” — Christopher Cvitanov

    Forty-two years ago today a jet airplane attempting to take off from Sacramento Executive Airport, crashed into a crowded Farrell’s ice cream parlor, killing 23 people and burning many others. A Sacramento firefighter, Gene LaVine, and eight members of his family died in the fiery crash. There was no burn care in Sacramento at that time.

    Shortly after the crash, Captain Cliff Haskell of the Sacramento Fire Department along with Sacramento Area Fire Fighters, Local 522 founded the Firefighters Burn Institute with a goal of establishing a local burn treatment facility in Sacramento. About one year later Sacramento’s first burn unit was established at U.C. Davis Medical Center.

    Today is a day of remembrance. We will never forget this tragic day in Sacramento’s history. Please take a moment today to remember those who lost their lives in this tragic accident. Lastly, we should all remember that as people; we are all capable of making things good after something bad happens.
