STAMFORD, Conn. -- The Stamford Fire Safety Foundation Fund and The Stamford Firefighters Burn Foundation will show “Burn,” an award-winning documentary about Detroit firefighters on Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Avon Theater and Film Center.
Producer/directors Tom Putnam and Brenna Sanchez were embedded with the crew of Engine Company 50, one of the busiest firehouses in America, which is on Detroit’s blighted east side. Over the course of a year, “Burn” gets an inside look at the people who, despite the challenges and dysfunction, risk their lives, day after day. A significant portion of any proceeds from the film will go to the Leary Firefighters Foundation to purchase much-needed gear for Detroit firefighters.
The Stamford Fire Safety Foundation Fund and The Stamford Fire Fighter's Burn Foundation are operated by Stamford Fire Fighters. The mission of the Stamford Fire Fighter's Burn Foundation's is to support burn education, prevention and treatment for fire fighters and local residents. The mission of the Stamford Fire Safety Foundation Fund is to improve the lives and safety of the Stamford community through the promotion of fire and safety education programs for Stamford residents, and fire and accident prevention programs.
