Kiwanis Community Burn Prevention Program
This program provides burn prevention education to schools serviced by the Kiwanis Club of East Baltimore. This program is managed and implemented by a professional fire chief recently retired from the Baltimore City Fire Department.
Burn Prevention Program for Seniors
This program is delivered throughout the state at senior centers and senior apartment complexes. This interactive program focuses on why seniors are more at risk for burn injury and fire-related death, and the simple steps that seniors can take to prevent burn injury and fire in their home.
Burn Prevention Program for Adults
This program is delivered at various locations throughout the state, including church groups, community organizations and places of business. This program can be tailored to fit the specific needs of your organization.
Community Health Fairs
The Johns Hopkins Burn Center participates in numerous community, school and employee health fairs throughout the state each year. We focus on providing community members of all ages with burn prevention and fire safety information for their families in an effort to keep the community informed and safe in their homes.
Safe Babies Program
The Safe Babies Program provides burn prevention materials to every new mother who delivers at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. These materials include a smoke detector, electrical outlet covers, a spillproof coffee mug, poison control information and a baby sitter memo board, as well as burn prevention and childhood safety information.
School and Work Re-Entry Programs
The Burn Center provides school and work re-entry education to assist burn survivors in their re-entry to the community. Each burn survivor and their workplace/school are assessed on an individual basis to determine their re-entry needs.
