Burn Prevention & Education

Legacy Health-HD colorThe Benefit Golf Classic as a golf tournament is our vehicle to bring together all Supporters and Sponsors to celebrate the fundraising portion of this Charity Event. The tournament is self-supporting via Players Fees, Prize donations and special money raising activities during the event. Absolutely “NO” donated dollars to the Burn Center are used to conduct the golf portion of this Charity Event.

Rest assured that 100% of all donations will go to the Burn Education and Prevention Program. Please help us in continuing this great program to help save lives both in the workplace and at home.

If you are interested in having the Burn Education and Prevention Program presented at your workplace, business or organization, free of charge, contact Curtis Ryun at (503) 317-5724 or email at cryun@lhs.org .

Legacy Oregon Burn Center

The Burn Outreach/Education program at the Oregon Burn Center provides information on burn and wound care to regional hospitals, EMS, fire departments, air ambulance, paramedic programs and nursing schools. We also provide classes for high risk industries in our region from Northern California to Alaska to Montana. This includes all inside electricians and linemen on the job as well as flaggers and tree trimmers to prevent injury on the job and what to do if there is an electrical injury. These classes are also provided to all apprentices in the region. The program also provides information on burn prevention to middle school and high school students as well as other community groups when requested. My duties as coordinator also include coordinating our Advanced Burn Life Support classes, national faculty for advanced burn life support, member of the prevention committee for the American Burn Association, Oregon life safety Team and Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition.

We have seen a decline in burn injuries, especially those in the electrical industry since we began these talks. With the cooperation of the industry this would not have been possible, especially the tireless support and commitment from organizations like yours. Without this partnership the number of injuries would have possibly remained the same or increased. Looking into the future we are going to be able to add part time help to get the information out to areas we were not able to get to in the past as we are now doing these talks at clinics.

Our partnerships also benefit Kids Burn Camp, after care support group for burn survivors and resources that will allow families from long distances away to have a place to stay while their family member is in the burn center.

Please let me know if there is anything else you would like to know about what we do and I will send it to you.
