Scald Injury Prevention
One of the most common types of burn is a scald. A scald burn occurs when your skin comes into contact with a hot liquid, such as hot water from a bathtub or faucet or cooking oil on the stove.
Children and Fire Safety
The National Safety Council advises everyone to enjoy fireworks at public displays conducted by professionals, and not to use any fireworks at home. They may be legal but they are not safe!
Gasoline is a liquid, but it makes a vapor that is very flammable! Vapors stay low to the ground and make a long trail from the gasoline. This vapor trial can easily catch fire if used near flame, causing a flash and severe burns to anyone close by. Never use gasoline to start a fire, and always store it in gas cans away from heat sources.
House and Apartment Fire Safety
Be sure you have smoke detectors installed on all levels of your home. Test them regularly and make and practice an Escape Plan in case of fire. If there is a fire, don’t get burned! Get out and call 911 right away.
