Earlier this month, Harvest Insurance in Steinbach, along with Red River Mutual, joined together to co-sponsor two community barbeques, helping to raise over $1,100 for the Firefighters’ Burn Fund of Manitoba.

The Firefighters’ Burn Fund of Manitoba raises funds to support exceptional burn care, treatment, rehabilitation, and research for burn survivors. They also support fire and burn prevention initiatives, including the Firefighters’ Burn Fund Fire Safety Trailer Program.

Red River Mutual is a major sponsor of the program, which has seen over 20 fire safety trailers deployed throughout the province of Manitoba. The trailers are provided to mutual aid districts to help deliver interactive fire safety education to young people at grade schools and public events.
