Burn Treatment Society
For burn victims, the road to recovery is often long and difficult. The Calgary Firefighters Burn Treatment Society is a registered non-profit organization that is managed and operated by firefighters who volunteer their time raising funds and awareness for the Calgary Firefighters Burn Treatment Centre at the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary.
The CFBTS dedicates monies raised to the purchase of new specialized equipment for the burn unit and to support the continuing education of burn treatment staff so that they remain current in new treatment techniques.

Constable John Petropoulos passed away in the line of duty. John was investigating a break and enter complaint when he stepped through a false ceiling, fell nine feet into the lunchroom below and succumbed to brain injuries. There was no safety railing to warn him of the danger. After his death, several of John’s recruit classmates set up the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund.
Our safety initiatives offer people tangible tips they can implement in their workplaces and on the roads to help ensure emergency responders make it home safely to their families after every shift. We strive to eliminate preventable workplace fatalities and injuries to emergency responders by educating the public about its role in helping to keep these essential workers safe on the job.
