Crozer-Chester Medical Center and its Burn Center invited firefighters and EMS professionals from throughout the region to attend a Firefighter and EMS Appreciation Day on Saturday, Nov. 12 at the medical center. 

Private tours of Crozer’s newly renovated Burn Center were given by the center’s physicians to the more than 100 firefighter and EMS professionals from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware who attended the event. Attendees enjoyed free food, beverages and giveaways as well as interactive displays about adult and pediatric burn inpatient and outpatient care; soft tissue care; burn research; trauma care; organ donation; the Burn Foundation, Crozer-Keystone EMS Institute and the Good Fellowship Ambulance Training Institute. In addition, several fire companies and EMS units displayed their vehicles, burn equipment vendor ESI displayed their wares, and attendees toured a PennSTAR helicopter.  

The official ribbon-cutting ceremony of the new Burn Center took place at 1 p.m. It opened with a traditional bagpiper as a way to honor the firefighters who have given their lives to save others. 

The Crozer Burn Center, founded in 1973, treats over 480 pediatric and adult burn victims a year. For more information, visit http://crozerburn.crozerkeystone.org.
