Burn Awareness Week

National Burn Awareness Week - February 6th – 12th, 2022

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.

To inspire kids to learn about burn and fire safety, the Office of the Fire Commissioner and the Manitoba Firefighters’ Burn Fund sponsor a poster contest for kids Grades 5 – 8. 

Kids are encouraged to submit their original artwork poster depicting any burn or fire safety message, and have a chance to win a Grand Prize.  Winning posters are then used throughout the year to promote fire and life safety throughout the Province.

Please keep checking back as information on this incredibly important week will be posted in the next while.
