Web Site synopsis:
The tragic loss of Captain Percy R Johnson in 1984 from the Shreveport Fire Department was the inspiration for the Percy R. Johnson Burn Foundation which supports the Louisiana Burn Camp each June. Burn survivors from through out the state of Louisiana attend and the camp is funded by the Foundation. This site is a tribute to Captain Johnson, his work as one of the first black firefighters in Shreveport. A fire instructor, training officer, and hazmat ( hazardous material ) specialist, Captain Percy R. Johnson lost his life after receiving severe burns in an explosion of anhydrous ammonia as a first responder to a call at the Dixie Cold Storage facility. The memory of this fallen hero, lives on in the efforts of the Burn Foundation as we provide support to burn survivors at the LSUHSC Regional Burn Center. The LSU facility serves Shreveport Bossier City, Northern Louisiana and parts of East Texas. Camp I.S.M. helps children age 7- 15, kids who are recovering severe burns. A home for families of burn victims and survivors, allows families to stay together as patients recover from surgery skin grafts and other burn treatments is also being remodeled to assist. Providing post surgical medical supplies, bandages and other health care needs are also projects of the Foundation. Your support in donations and volunteer help are greatly appreciated. Your caring can mean all the difference for a burn survivor. Captain Johnson was an active member of his community church and in the Christian spirit we know your support here will reap God's blessings.
