Firefighters Burn Institute was founded, and continues to be led, by firefighters wanting to make a difference by serving their extended community.
Our programs go far beyond just coming to the aid of burn-injured firefighters. FFBI’s range of services encompass the entire burn community and the medical professionals who treat them. Our annual Firefighters Kids Camp and Little Heroes Preschool Camp, along with the Adult Retreat, make a difference in the lives of survivors, their families and their peers as they overcome the physical and emotional challenges associated with burn recovery. These programs are largely staffed and supported by the same rescue personnel that might have responded to their call!
In recent years, the FFBI has broadened its scope to address the very specific and unique experience of burn injured firefighters, through its Firefighter Response Team, providing support to the families of those firefighters admitted to our Regional Burn Center, and a Firefighter Peer Support Group.
