Who We Are And What We Do
AFP’s purpose is to support the work of the crucial centers, fund patient care, provide burn medical education and support injury prevention initiatives and community burn awareness programs.
Unfortunately, it is the vulnerable in our society who are the most frequent victims of catastrophic fires. Seniors over 70 and children under 5 are at greatest risk for death and injury due to fire. In fact, they are twice as likely to die from fire than the population at large. Sadly, it is children under 10 that comprise 17% of all deaths from fire.
AFP believes it is a community's duty to protect those who are most vulnerable and most at risk. AFP’s board directs much needed funds to help the survivors of catastrophic fires.
AFP is dedicated to protecting our communities by directing much needed funds to help survivors of catastrophic fires.
Over 25,000 people survive
catastrophic fires each year.
