Thanks for visiting our site! We invite you to explore, interact, and learn from it, but before you do we think that you should know more about us and how we got our start! Approximately 10 years ago an infamous and crusty Lieutenant with the heart the size of Goliath from the New London Fire Department began volunteering his vacation time to be a councilor at the CT Burn Camp in Union CT. This camp is run one week every summer for child burn victums. A place where no one stares and kids can just be kids. Soon other members of our department became councilors. Firefighters are keenly aware of the lasting and painful scars left by fire, and are the type of people who have to help when they see someone in need, and so evolved the New London Fighters Burn Foundation where 13 of the rank and file work to help burn victims and their families. As the only not-for-profit 501(c)(3) in Eastern Connecticut we raise money to assist families with the costs associated with the recovery form burn injuries as well as promoting burn prevention, research and support of the camp.
