BSTTW Rebuilding Lives Auction
In 2005 there were 1,602,000 fires in the United States. Fifty percent of those fires were outside and other fires. Over thirty-one
percent were structure fires. And eighteen percent were vehicle fires. The results of those fires were 3,675 deaths and 17,925 burn injuries. To find out more about the United
BSTTW is an international non profit organization, we must look at the situation not only in the USA but around the world. The BSTTW Board of Directors asks you to take a moment and think about how many people from around the world die or are injured daily due to home fires. The statistics are higher than we can imagine. There are millions of fires each year in every part of the world. Some of the areas around the world do not have a burn unit, the medical staff and medical equipment needed to help a burn victim recover and become a burn survivor. It has been shown that children and the elderly are especially at risk in home fires. This is due to the fact that our children and the elderly are less able to escape a fire. We can improve the chances that our family will survive a home fire by installing smoke alarms and practicing fire safety and how to exit when the alarm sounds. With your financial and volunteer support BSTTW can continue to donate the finances, medical equipment, advocacy, support and fire safety information needed to prevent fires and rebuild the lives of the people who suffer a burn injury and their family members.
