Burn Awareness Week, observed the first full week in February, is a window of opportunity for organizations to mobilize burn, fire and life safety educators to unite in sharing a common burn awareness and prevention message in our communities.

Our 2021 theme is Electrical Safety from Amps to Zap (A to Z)! Throughout the week of February 7-13, 2021, we invite you to use the #NBAW and add your own letter to the alphabet for electrical safety. Be sure to tag @Ameriburn!
