The mission of the Liaison Response Team (LRT) is to provide assistance to fire fighters and other emergency service personnel, their families and departments following the aftermath of a burn injury. When a fire fighter is injured and ends up in a hospital, their loved one may be rushed from their home and not return for weeks or months while they tend to their family member in the hospital. We help provide lodging, food, clothing, and more to assist them during this critical time. With direction from family, we may also help mediate between the nursing staff, visitors, the media and the fire fighter’s family. During the record setting wild fire season of 2015, we implemented this program when several fire fighters were burned and one stayed at Harborview’s Burn Unit for approximately 60 days.
