TOMA at the Eastern Ontario Regional Firefit Combat Challenge held on
July 1st 2000 in Kanata

In addition to bringing timely concrete and material help to burned kids, one of the Foundation's principal goals is to educate the public at large and to carry out burn, burn safety and fire prevention activities and events.

As the saying goes:

"An ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure"

and we accomplish this in several ways:

  • Weekly In-house burn and fire prevention safety presentations to customers in high volume retail businesses throughout Ontario and Québec

  • Distribution of free burn and fire prevention safety kits

  • Interacting with and being present at local, Provincial, National and International events with fire-fighters, local Fire Departments and Services, Provincial and National Association Conventions and special Regional events such as the Firefit Combat Regional Challenge held in Kanata ON in July 2000 and the International Extrication Competitions held in August 2001 in Burlington ON. Additional such events in 2001 were the Kitchener-Waterloo and St. Thomas Musters. The Foundation continues to have a very strong presence at several of these events and is regularly invited to FFAO (FireFighters Association of Ontario), OAFC (Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs), CAFC (Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs) Conventions and other high profile events such the Emergency Preparedness presentations. 

  • A strong  presence at various local and regional fairs, festivals and events with a view to presenting burn and fire safety related information and safety programs as well as presentations to various Fire Academies such as Durham College..

  • Publishing various articles dealing with burn safety and prevention in various high profile publications such as "The Volunteer Voice" the official magazine of the Canadian Volunteer Fire Services Association (CVFSA) and the Official Newsletter of the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC).
