National Burns Awareness Month
June is National Burns Awareness month. We have partnered with Kidsafe Australia and ANZBA to spread awareness about the prevention and correct first aid treatment for minor burn injuries.
For Burns Awareness Month, we spoke to Noah and his family about his experience. Noah was just 14 months old when he received burn injuries to the lower half of his body. You can watch this terrific video message from Noah's parents, Mandy and Mark and see how Noah is a year on.
We have created a number of prevention and education resources for our community to use, available to download below. The resources are designed to educate the best ways to prevent a burn, spreading awareness of the common causes and what to do if you receive a burn injury.
You can also check out resources created by Kidsafe Australia and ANZBA.
Remember, 20 mins cool running water is the best first aid.
