It Can Happen in a Flash With a Splash! Liquid and Steam Burn Like Fire!

It is National Burn Awareness Week and it runs February 1-7, 2016.

The theme for National Burn Awareness Week 2016 is Scald Prevention. Did you know that between
2007 and 2013, the proportion of burn center admissions due to scald burns increased from 29.8% to 33.7%. There appears to be an epidemic of liquid and steam burns!

We will be sharing safety tips, messages, and information all week in an effort to try and reduce scald burns.

Always remember: It can happen in a flash with a splash! Liquid and steam burn like fire!
