Dozens of teen burn survivors are on their way to Washington, D.C. for a priceless one-week camp experience hosted by the IAFF Foundation and led by professional fire fighter counselors who know full well the challenges these remarkable children face. Mary Daron, 15, from Crawfordville, arrived in the Nation’s Capital Saturday to attend the IAFF International Burn Camp, a special one-week camp designed to help teen burn survivors come to terms with their life-changing injuries.
No one understands the harrowing effects of a fire more than fire fighters who are first on the scene treating injuries that can last a lifetime. Too often, children are the ones rescued and left facing a future of physical and emotional challenges. These fire fighter counselors are committed to providing a new level of care to these brave survivors that will help them grow and thrive.
