Burn Prevention Network


 

The mission of the Burn Prevention Network is to provide burn injury prevention education, materials, and advocacy throughout North America. The Burn Prevention Network is dedicated to empowering communities everywhere to create a World Without Burns.

 

 

WHO WE ARE

 

The Burn Prevention Network is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization currently serving 22 counties throughout Eastern Pennsylvania and Warren County, New Jersey. Our mission is to provide burn injury prevention education, materials, and advocacy throughout North America.

Burn care professionals estimate that over 75% of all medically treated burn injuries could have been prevented by means of behavioral and environmental modification. The Burn Prevention Network has more than 35 years of experience and proven performance in the development and effective, efficient delivery of targeted fire safety education programs – to children, parents, seniors, teachers and even fire services personnel.

 

WHAT WE DO

 

Burn Prevention Network reaches the maximum number of program participants and beneficiaries through collaboration with a wide network of community partners. BPN works with fire services, first responders and emergency service groups, educators, healthcare provider organizations, community service groups, and others dedicated to spreading awareness of fire and burn safety and prevention issues, programs and services.

Within eastern Pennsylvania, over 900 elementary and middle schools partner with us in the annual delivery of our in-school fire safety and burn prevention programs targeted at 1st through 8th grades. Businesses, corporations and health care organizations also play a major role in supporting the delivery of our targeted programs and in sharing our materials with employees.

Camp Susquehanna

Camp Susquehanna is dedicated to providing children with burns the opportunities to face social and physical challenges, develop self-esteem, and promote a positive attitude while encouraging healthy independence.  Camp is a safe place for healing, a place for children to share feelings about difficult experiences, perhaps for the first time.
