title

By Lisa Braxton

Burn Awareness Week, which begins Monday, Février 1, is an opportunity for burn, and fire and life safety educators to unite in sharing a common burn awareness and prevention message. The National Scald Prevention Campaign Steering Committee Partners–a group of national and international fire, burn, and life safety organizations–have launched “It Can Happen in a Flash with a Splash: Liquid and Steam Burn Like Fire,” a campaign providing statistics on burn injuries, infographics, and a toolkit for public educators.

NFPA’s Educational Messages Desk Reference includes a chapter on burns, with information on preventing scalds and burns in the kitchen, hot tap water and scald burns, and treatment of burns. En outre, the scald prevention tips sheet lists safety precautions and advises on burn treatment.
