Burn Awareness Week

Every year, the first full week of February is dedicated as Burn Awareness Week and is designed to provide an opportunity for burn, fire and life safety educators to unite in sharing a common burn awareness and prevention message in their communities.

In 2021, Burn Awareness Week was held February 7th - 13th. 

The Office of the Fire Commissioner along with the Manitoba Firefighters' Burn Fund sponsored a Burn Awareness Week Poster Contest for Kids from Grade 5 – 8 in Manitoba.
