NYFSCA, 15th Year Raising Funds for the NY Firefighters Burn Center Foundation

NYFFBClogoThis year will mark our Association's 15th year raising funds on behalf of the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation. Since we began, we have raised over $589,000. Our industrys donations have helped to fund pediatric burn care, specialized equipment, training for the New York Presbyterian Hospital burn team, the skin bank and sending children to burn camp. With your help, we have made a tremendous impact in improving the lives and care of burn victims. Last year nearly 4,000 burn patients were treated at the William Randolph Hearst Burn Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Each year over 2,000 children in New York State receive medical attention for a burn related injury. The New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation is a non-profit organization of firefighters founded in 1976. It is dedicated to the advancement of burn care, research, prevention, education, and the proper treatment of burns. The Foundations goal is to make quality burn care available to all who are seriously burned, regardless of age, race, creed or economic status. It is fully staffed by volunteer current and retired FDNY and its primary recipient is the world renowned William Randolph Hearst Burn Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
