Firefighters and trainees from the Central Sierra ROP participated in collecting money for the Firefighters Burn Institute on February 11, 2017.
The Firefighters Burn Institute is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded by Sacramento Fire Captain Cliff Haskell and the Sacramento Area Fire Fighters Local 522 in 1973, for the purpose of establishing a local burn treatment facility; providing recovery programs for burn survivors; providing fire and burn prevention through public education; funding education for burn team professionals, firefighters, and burn survivors; and supporting burn treatment and rehabilitation research. Information can be found at http://ffburn.org
This year we collected over $11,000.
Thanks to everyone the helped and donated. This will make a huge difference for someone's life.
