IAEI Ontario Chapter supports St. John’s Rehab and Camp Bucko
By Anthony Capkun
October 18, 2012 – At the recent annual general meeting of the Ontario Chapter of the Canadian Section of IAEI (International Association of Electrical Inspectors), the chapter decided it would make donations to a couple of organizations that support persons recovering from electrical and burn injuries. The two organizations selected were Camp Bucko and St. John’s Rehab.
On October 16, two chapter reps met with reps from each organization, presenting each with a cheque of $5000.
St. John’s Rehab was selected for its world-class research and care into the treatment of electrical injury, says the chapter, adding the hospital and Dr. Joel Fish have provided electrical burn victims with innovative treatments in a state-of-the-art facility with caring staff, helping them along their long road to recovery.
Camp Bucko is a camp for children from ages 7 to 17, and has done “excellent work in helping children with serious burns regain confidence and ‘forget’ about their injuries in a week-long camp experience”.
