Share burn and fire prevention tips during Burn Awareness Week

title

Por Lisa Braxton

Burn Awareness Week is being observed this first full week of February. It’s designed to provide an opportunity for burn, and fire and life safety educators to unite in sharing burn prevention information with the public.

Scald burns are the second leading cause of all burn injuries. In addition to explaining how to treat a burn, NFPA’s Scald Prevention Safety Tips sheet provides a list of safety behaviors to be used while running bath water for a child, using a microwave oven, and heating liquids on the stove.

The community toolkit on cooking safety has a number of resources safety educators can use to reach the public, including a PowerPoint presentation on how to prevent cooking fires, scalds, and burns; an easy-to-read handout on how to be fire safe in the kitchen; temas de conversación; fact sheets; vídeos; and community outreach ideas.

NFPA’s consumer cooking safety information also provides another excellent resource to help with sharing the fire and burn prevention message with the public.
