Each year Nova Scotia Fire Fighters respond to thousands of emergency calls. Fire fighters respond to the problem as quickly as possible,
but the commitment and dedication to the injured does not end when the emergency is under control and trucks are back in the station.
Incorporated by local fire fighters in 1983, the Nova Scotia Fire Fighters' Burn Treatment Society is a non-profit charity that has contributed burn care equipment and educational materials to our local hospitals, assisted burn survivors with post hospital care, and supported burn survivors with their ongoing issues as they continue the long struggle to recover physically and emotionally. The reward is immeasurable as we witness milestone moments in a survivors long road to recovery.
If you want to learn more about us and perhaps interested in becoming a member of the Society please feel free to contact us

Special Night For Bob Ruggles
Bob Ruggles is no stranger to those who have attended the Society's annual Bowl-A-Thon. In the 38 times we have held this event, Bob has fundraised well over $60,000 during his 36 appearances at the Bowl-A-Thon. While he was unable to attend the last event in person on April 29th due to health issues, he still raised and sent in over $9000, an amazing accomplishment! On May 24, Society members paid a visit to Bob at Station 38 to present him with his High Individual Pleadge 1st place prize as well as a plaque commemorating his longtime involvement with the Bowl-A-Thon.
Also in attendance that night was Halifax Deputy Fire Chief, Peter Andrews, to presend Bob with the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal in recognition of Bob's longtime dedication to the Fire Service and his community. Pictures of the presentations are available by clicking here.
Bob has announced his retirement from attending our annual Bowl-A-Thon and we will certainly miss seeing his smiling face at the event. We want to thank him for all his efforts and generosity over the years and wish him good health and all the best.
