Sixteenth Annual Burn Aid 2023 Golf Classic

The Tangier Shriners transport patients receiving pediatric orthopedic, spinal cord, cranial facial, and burn care in their hospital system to and from whichever hospital they are receiving treatment. The cost of this service is funded thru the Tangier Shriners Transportation Fund. The Burn Aid Golf Tournament will directly support the current 350 local children receiving care at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Cincinnati, St. Louis, Minneapolis and Chicago. Today, the Shriners are providing transportation for patients 4 to 5 days a week. Be it by van or thru the air, dedicated volunteers keep this service running.

Please help FSCAN support the Tangier Shriners and burn victims in our community! There is always strength in numbers. The larger the FSCAN tournament grows, the more support we can provide to the transportation fund. This event is open to the public with registration costs associated with each entry. Please review the information provided on FSCAN’s website below to see how you can support the cause and GET INVOLVED!

Student Outreach

SFPE Great Plains chapter - Student Outreach The Great Plains chapter of the Society for Fire Protection Engineers wants to reach out to high school and college students regarding careers in the field of Fire Protection Engineering. The SFPE has a presentation on Careers in Fire Protection that can be shared with high school or college students studying Engineering & Architecture. We would like to present it to the classes directly, or share it so the educators can present it if that is preferred, in order to encourage interest in the field of Fire Protection. The SFPE’s ‘Chemistry of Fire’ is geared to high school chemistry students. It will teach students the science behind fire as a way for students to fully understand the dangers of fire. As a result, it will increase the awareness of fire and the importance of home fire prevention. When chemistry students see real world applications of this fascinating science they may be inspired to explore an exciting career as a fire protection engineer. The interactive program comes on a DVD that can be distributed to educators as needed and there is a website with additional resources SFPE EDUCATION.
