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.

Content has been developed by the American Burn Association. All materials may be used for educational purposes in any context. You may add your own logos, but the ABA logo may not be removed without permission.
