February 1st-7th, 2015 is National Burn Awareness Week, seven days dedicated to raise awareness of the hazards of burns, fires, and scalding. The focus of this first week in February is to make known the measures of preventing future burn and scalding incidents. Since we at S&S are in the business of preventing fires, it is very important to us to make sure you and your business, building, workers, and families are safe, healthy, and burn-free. That is why we are dedicated to participating in efforts that bring awareness to the prevention and hazards of burns and to donate funds to those treating burn-related injuries.
In 2012, The Alabama Fire Sprinkler Association led by S&S Sprinkler Co.’s Leland Moore, Sr. presented a check for $15,000 to the USA Burns Center on behalf of the Tony Bice Memorial Golf Tournament. This is an annual AFSA sponsored fundraising golf tournament in Birmingham that benefits the three burns centers in the State of Alabama.
Tony Bice worked for Guntersville Fabrication, a leading producer for automatic fire sprinkler systems, for nearly 20 years and dedicated his life to protecting people and buildings from fires until his death in 1993. In 1994, the Tony Bice Memorial Golf Tournament was established in honor of his commitment to helping others, his love for golf, and to raise funds for the USA Burn Centers in Alabama. Over its history, the tournament has donated more than $1.1 million to burn centers in Alabama.
We are delighted that we can be a part of this fundraiser, and are proud to have our very own Leland Moore, Sr. mentioned on a plaque at the University of South Alabama Medical Center. It reads:
Much Of The Equipment, Electronics, And Furnishing

It Is With Deepest Appreciation And Gratitude
To These Friends That We Dedicate This Plaque.
