Acknowledging Local Support...


'Doug Castel presented one of our clocks to Joe Dupuis from Amherst during their annual curling fundraiser for the NSFFBTS.  Joe is the owner of the local A&W in Amherst and has donated a lot to the event to ensure its success.


This year he donated the costs for all the ice time, several prizes, and was responsible for bringing back the fabulous kitchen staff for the event.  In recognition of his efforts we presented him with the clock. The event was attended by Dave Collier, Doug Castel, Jim Benoit and Graham Feindel. Proceeds from this event will be donated to us by the Amherst Fire Department during our annual bowl-a-thon.'



DND Fire Donates Hockey Win to NSFFBTS


The DND Fire Dept Hockey Team won the annual Ray Kline Memorial Fire Dept Hockey Tournament held at the Centennial arena in mid-January. Tournament organizers provided the winning team with $500 plus canteen profits to donate to the charity of their choice.  Both finalists, DND Fire and Halifax Rickards Red chose the Society as their preferred charity.


Congratulations the DND Fire on their 2013 championship win and a huge ‘thank you’ from the Society for the total $750 donation. The Society would also like to recognize and thank Halifax Regional Fire Fighters Derek McCarthy and Adam MacNeil for their efforts in organizing the tournament.





Responding To The Call

Each year Nova Scotia Firefighters receive thousands of emergency calls. Well trained firefighters respond to the problem as quickly as possible. But the commitment and dedication to the injured do not end when the emergency is under control and trucks are back in the station.

In 1983, eight firefighters founded the Nova Scotia Firefighters' Burn Treatment Society. The aim of this charitable organization is to raise money for the victims of burn injury.

Camp Connect


The NSFFBTS, influenced by the QEII and the IWK burn units, established a camp where adult and child survivors of burns could come together.  The camp started in 1998 and has been a great success ever since.


The primary purpose of the camp is to provide an opportunity for burn survivors to come together in a relaxed atmosphere and enjoy all the fun that a camp can provide.


It’s also an opportunity for the campers, if they wish, to join in discussions about being a burn survivor.
