The Dearborn Firefighters Burn Drive was established over fourty years ago. The
dedicated firefighters of the Dearborn Firefighters Local 412 along with their families
friends and volunteers have literally dedicated thousands and thousands of hours for
one purpose, to help children who have suffered the ravages of a burn injury.
Our motto "It's For The Kids" was coined by Retired Fire Captain Danny
Davis. Nobody in the history of the burn drive has ever given as much to the children
and our cause than he has.
Continuing with the proud traditions of those that came before us. Our Burn Drive
members donate 100% of their time. In addition, 100% of all donations made to the
Dearborn Firefighters Burn Drive is used by the Burn Drive for those in need and the cost
of raising money for those in need.

Dearborn Firefighters Burn Drive receives a salary, stipend, tip or pay of any kind for their

The Dearborn Firefighters burn drive has raised over $1,000,000 since it's creation. We
have also placed over $550,000 in various endowments funds. Our donations have
helped countless people who have suffered the ravaging effects of a burn injury. We
have donated money people can use for medical bills, equipment and is some cases
travel and lodging for families when they need to temporally relocate to an area with
a Burn Center for treatment.
Over the years our organization has branched our fingers of donation to include
treatment from cancer or disease for the families of children suffering from such.
Although most of our donations are made to children, their families and hospitals, we
do donate money to adults in an extenuating circumstance.
The Dearborn Firefighters Burn Drive is both a fund raising organization and a
The Committee meets on a regular basis in person. We consider all requests for a
donation at those meetings. Whether a request is granted is decided by the
committee based on the individuals actual monetary need, family circumstance, type
of injury/illness and expected recovery time. The committee grants requests based on
a majority vote. There is no standard donation and no expectation of any donation
amount should be assumed by any person or organization.
