Give Burns The Boot

“Give Burns the Boot” – Boot Drive

The Burn Prevention Network has begun conducting the largest coordinated Firefighters Boot Drive in our Region. Scores of fire companies/departments and hundreds of firefighters have been stationed in intersections and at public locations throughout the months of May, June, and July, all collecting donations to support burn survivors, their families and the expansion of burn prevention education within our area.

“Give Burns the Boot is an initiative that has been successfully conducted for years in other areas of our Country,” noted Dan Dillard, executive director/CEO of the Burn Prevention Network. “Firefighters have a special connection with burn survivors and are passionate champions for their support. It is only logical that those who risk their lives to save others from burning buildings, would rally to the support of those seriously injured by fire.”
