Many companies in the security and fire alarm industry give generously to a wide variety of humanitarian causes. Potter Electric Signal Co. is among them, providing support and education to a cause that seems poignantly apropos for a fire and life safety company: the Missouri Children’s Burn Camp for child burn survivors.

Here’s more from a news release from the St. Louis, Mo.-based Potter, saying it once again participated in the camp, which took place in August this year at Camp Sabra in Rocky Mount, Mo.:

Potter has supported this deserving cause for over 10 years and counting. Burns Recovered Support Group, Inc. sponsors the Burn Camp every year dating back to its inception in 1997.

With the assistance of St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, Burns Recovered Support Group, Inc. was formed in 1983 by a group of burn survivors with the mission of burn survivor support along with aiding medical facilities and providing burn care education and prevention. The Burn Camps hosts between 75 and 85 children every year as enrollment continues to grow. Organizers of the 16th annual Missouri Children’s Burn Camp raised approximately $150,000 for the child burn survivor’s community.

Bernard Lears, President and CEO Potter Electric Signal Company, LLC, “For over ten years, Potter has supported the Missouri Children’s Burn Camp. This noble cause truly gives back to the community and touches the hearts of every participant. Severe burns are a terrible tragedy that Potter strives to prevent everyday through our innovation and continued dedication to life safety. It’s why we are in business. Burns Recovered Support Group, Inc. provides an invaluable service to those in need and Potter looks forward to continuing to support this deserving cause in the future.

Due to the generous support of all its sponsors, all participants enjoy a week full of fun and support for free. The Burn Camp is intended for child burn survivors between the ages of 6-17 with severe burns.
