IAFF Foundation Burn Fund
Of all the injuries that a fire fighter may suffer, none is more traumatic than a severe burn injury. When an IAFF member or their immediate family member suffers a burn injury, the Burn Fund provides financial assistance for temporary emergency expenses.
Additionally, a burn survivor peer support network is available for IAFF members.
“Because of the amazing compassion of the IAFF Foundation Burn Fund, I was able to focus my energy on healing and recovery rather then the financial burden that was on my family.”

International Burn Camp
Held annually in Washington, DC, the camp is a life-changing opportunity for burn survivors ages 13-15 and the fire fighters/camp counselors who work to make a difference in the lives of these young people. The all-expenses paid, week-long camp helps burn survivors understand that they are not alone and that there is a larger support system for them.
