Annual Burn Institute Firefighter Demolition Derby

This year Miramar Local F-289 will be entering two cars. We have a set a lofty goal this year to raise $15000. With you help we can meet and exceed our goal.

The Burn Institute’s 30th Annual Fire & Safety Expo and Firefighter Demolition Derby will take place on June 6th 2020, during the San Diego County Fair. This highly anticipated annual event includes firefighting and safety demonstrations, a fire-and-burn-prevention pavilion, and of course, the Firefighter Demolition Derby. The Demo Derby always enjoys a packed house and is by far the Burn Institute’s most popular event among the fire service!

About the Burn Institute

Our Mission is to educate and inspire our communities to prevent burn injuries and empower those affected by burn trauma.

Everything started with one doctor. One with a dream to give burn patients specialized care.

Mobilizing a network of community activists, Dr. Hugh Frank, a San Diego hand surgeon, raised money for a specialized treatment center. And he made a real difference in our region.

Each year, the Burn Institute reaches 1,000s of youth, adults, and seniors in San Diego and Imperial Counties. With our programs and services, we help prevent fires – and the injuries that can result. For individuals with burn injuries and their families, we provide support programs and financial assistance that gives coping skills, true community, and hope.

Every contribution makes all the difference.

With your donation, we can prevent fires, reduce the resulting burn injuries, and help all burn survivors thrive. You can be a champion for San Diego and Imperial Counties’ safety and well-being.Together, we can make a compassionate – and life-saving – impact on our community.
