The Regional Burn Center's staff presents a wide range of educational programs for professionals, first-line responders, community hospital
emergency rooms, and nursing students annually.
We also present programs for the community on burn prevention. The program is custom fit to meet the community's needs.
Burney the Bear, the unit's mascot is frequently incorporated into the course content. His message is how to prevent fires and what to do should your clothing catch on fire.
For information on the Regional Burn Center's educational classes, please call 217-788-3325.
