FIRST AID EQUIPMENT
What do I do if someone is burnt?
The Children’s Hospital Burns Research Institute at Sydney’s Westmead Hospital has these recommendations for first aid treatment for minor burns:
- remove all clothing immediately, unless it is stuck to the skin.
- cover unburnt areas with either dry clothes or a blanket
- run cold tap directly onto the burn for at least 20 minutes – NEVER use ice, creams or butter to treat burns or scalds
- continue cooling through transportation to hospital with a fine mist spray or frequently changing soaked dressings
- never use ice
