Families Positively Impacted
The Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation consists of active fire department personnel providing support to victims of fires & catastrophic events. The Burn Survivor Initiative raises funds to help more children attend seasonal burn camps, receive counseling and attend school reintegration programs. The Burn Foundation also collects toys for the disadvantaged children throughout the valley, and have provided at least one toy to thousands of children in need during the holidays.
While fighting fires, firefighters witnessed many burn victims and their families suffer physically and emotionally after ultimately losing their homes and necessities. These firefighters from across the valley decided to do something to help. Each year, thousands of children receive traumatic burns throughout the USA. In Las Vegas alone, the scars caused by burns affect hundreds of our kids each year. These scars must be worn physically and emotionally for the remainder of their lives. The Burn Survivor Initiative raises funds to help more children attend seasonal burn camps, receive counseling, attend school reintegration programs and begin living their lives again.
When firefighters anywhere in the valley are faced with a burn victim or family in need of support, they contact a representative of the Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation to assist.
Due to the firefighters' success in helping others and raising funds, this coalition began to take it further in the community and began to collect toys during the month of December, for the disadvantaged children throughout the valley. The Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation have provided at least one toy to thousands of children in need during the holidays. For over 16 years, they have held successful Toy Drives and given back to the children in our community.
In 2003 it became apparent that it was time for this coalition to become a formal charity. We became a 501c3 charitable organization and continue to provide support to those families in need throughout Southern Nevada today.
