National Burns Awareness

June is National Burns Awareness Month

As we shiver through one of Melbournes coldest days many of us reached for the hot water bottles, bumped up the heating or switched on the fire.

It may surprise some of you but there is an increase in Burns in Winter. Open fires, bonfires, heating and hot water bottles can cause significant, lasting burns and damage to our skin. June is National Burns Awareness Month, so be aware of the traps and check out the Kidsafe list below to ensure your little ones are safe.

Children are especially vulnerable so have a look at this Kidsafe checklist and act today!
