The Advanced Burn Life Support program is the ABA’s premier educational resources for the emergency care of burn injured patients.

Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) programs provide knowledge for immediate care of the burn patient up to the first 24-hours post injury. ABLS programs also support emergency preparedness and mass casualty incidents focusing on triage, burn survivability, prioritizing transport of patients and patient treatment.

The audience for the ABLS program is anyone who may come into early contact with a burn injury.  This includes fire fighters, EMTs, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, therapists, emergency physicians and nurses, pediatricians and pediatric nurses, first responders, military personnel and many others.
