The North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center participates in the state's Burn Disaster Program as part of a cooperative effort that also includes Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and the East Carolina School of Medicine. The program is based upon the premise that historical catastrophic events have occurred and produced significant burn and blast injuries. Current burn beds are routinely running at capacity both within our state and across the nation. With the likelihood of these events occurring in the future, there is distinct necessity for better preparedness for these likely events.
The program is supported by an ASPR grant representing the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and administered by the North Carolina Office of Emergency Medical Services.
