According to the American Burn Association (ABA), about 480,000 people visited emergency departments across the U.S. between 2011 and 2015, seeking treatment for fire or burn injuries. 9 out of 10 of these people were treated and released, and an estimated 96-97% of people treated at burn centers will survive, but these burns can have significant and lasting consequences on all areas of a victim’s life.
