To encourage follow-up and regional support after the Phoenix World Burn Congress on May 14th, we are happy to announce the 2021 Burn Survivor and Family Workshop will be offered virtually this year and is open to all burn survivors, their family members, medical professionals, and fire service 18 years of age and older.  

Also, we get it – virtual fatigue is a real thing. But you don’t want to miss this opportunity to connect with your community. It will refresh your spirit, renew your sense of belonging, and inspire you to stay connected, and take the next step in your journey.

Burns are difficult and challenging injuries, as they often have a life-long impact. The suffering caused by burns is made even more tragic by the fact that they are preventable. The Burn Injury Awareness Walk will bring together burn survivors and their families, first responders, safety and medical professionals, and community members to walk for burn injury awareness, public education, and prevention. A Safety Education Fair and picnic will immediately follow the walk and offer fun for all ages. Please visit the event page for more details.

Gallup Park Canoe Livery Information 

We would love to have your group out paddling boats at Gallup Park! ~Cheryl, Recreation Supervisor

We have an ADA dock, wheelchair transfer station in to a boat with a ramp to the water, and foam pieces to help stabilize individuals in the boats. We have 3 seat paddle boats. 2 seat canoes (one can sit in the middle of the floor of the boat), 5 seat rowboats, 2 seat kayaks and 1 seat kayaks. The livery supervisors would work with each individual on what type of boat would best fit their needs and livery staff would be on the docks assisting individuals in and out of the boats. We have almost 600 boats so we will have plenty of choices for your group.
