Burn Awareness Week, observed the first full week in February, is an acknowledged ‘window of opportunity’ for your organization 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.
