Burn Awareness Week, observed the first full week in February, is an acknowledged ‘window of opportunity’ for burn/fire prevention organizations to mobilize burn, fire and life safety educators to unite in sharing a common burn awareness and prevention message in our communities. Burn Awareness Week, celebrated early in the year, is an excellent opportunity to “kick off” a year full of burn awareness education. The 2017 Burn Awareness Week dates are February 5-11, 2017. A complete fresh set of resource materials for National Burn Awareness Week and all of 2017 are available at the link below for your use.
