Our Buddy Bears Campaign holds a special place in our hearts.
Buddy bears are teddy bears that are kept on board the fire trucks of the St. John’s Regional Fire Department. Firefighters working with the St. John’s Regional Fire Department use these bears when they encounter children who are involved in high stress situations such as: car accidents, structural fires, and the loss of life. The bears are given to children as a gift to help calm them, and lessen the impact of stressful and frightening events.
We are proud to say we have a continuing partnership with the St. John’s Fire Fighters Association with the support of the St. John’s Regional Fire Department on such a worthwhile campaign
