Spirit of Courage Awards

May 2 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Burn Institute Awards 2022

Each year, the Burn Institute pays tribute to a special set of local heroes. These heroes risked their lives in an effort to save another person from burn injury or death.

In 1974, members of a local support group for burn survivors, Burns Recovered, approached the Burn Institute with the idea of honoring these courageous citizens. Many of the burn survivors were rescued by such brave individuals. Naturally, they wanted to express their strong appreciation publicly. The Burn Institute supported the concept and has continued to present these awards for the past 50 years. The Annual Spirit of Courage Awards banquet is a community service of the Burn Institute.

Citizens are nominated by local fire service and law enforcement agencies. Then, a Burn Institute board committee – composed of fire service personnel and other professionals – select the final recipients.
