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.
