"The county does a good job of supporting it, but they do not have the funds to send the doctors and nurses to different school and seminars, and there is certain equipment that is not state-of-the-art," said Paul Napoli, co-chairman, Nassau County Firefighters Burn Center Foundation. "We are trying to make a good burn center a great burn center, in terms of the care and treatment it offers."

Firefighters and members of the Burn Unit Teams have a special empathy for burn victims.  No other group witnesses more of the devastation that fire wreaks on the human body.Nassau County Fire Fighters Burn Center Foundation
