About Us

The Aluminum Cans for Burned Children Foundation (ACBC) was founded in 1989 by a group of firefighting and medical organizations to help children who suffer from severe burn injuries. The ACBC program pays for special medical equipment not normally covered by insurance to aid in the healing process and strives to meet the individual needs of patients. Our mission is to prevent burn injuries through fire education and to impact the physical and emotional rehabilitation of pediatric burn survivors. 


ACBC programs include providing the Fire Safety House, operated by firefighters, to Northeast Ohio elementary schools and community home days promoting fire safety in the home. The goal of ACBC is to educate young children about the dangers of fire, how to call 911 in the event of an emergency, what to do if there is a fire in their home, and other important fire safety tips. ACBC also serves pediatric victims of fire, ages 5 to 18 years of age that have been treated at the John Gannon Burns and Trauma Center at MetroHealth. The program provides a summer and winter camp for 20 to 30 children.
