As many of you know, I have been a brand ambassador for Kidde team for the past year. As part of #TeamKidde, I’ve been sharing great fire and carbon monoxide safety tips and resources to help make your home and your family safer. You also know that this past year, I launched the Dad Spotlight podcast.
This week on the Dad Spotlight podcast, we partnered with Kidde to bring you a great interview with Amy Acton, Executive Director of the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors to talk about burn prevention and burn survivor support.
If you don’t know about this great organization, let me share a bit about them!
About the Phoenix Society
The Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors is the leading national nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering anyone affected by a burn injury through peer support, education and advocacy.
Each year, 40,000 people are hospitalized with burn injuries. The Phoenix Society is committed to letting burn survivors know that they are not alone. Their community of burn survivors, their loved ones, health professionals and firefighters help each person involved get back to living their life.
About the Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery® (SOAR®) program
Started in 2003 with funding from Kidde, the organization’s Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery® (SOAR®) program is currently in 64 hospitals and burn centers, connecting those recently injured with burn survivors and family members who can support their recovery. In 2014, the Phoenix Society partnered with the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) to develop a version of SOAR for burn-injured firefighters. Kidde is the inaugural sponsor of the program.
So take a listen, I know you will learn a ton!
