NATIONAL BURN AWARENESS DAY
21st October 2015
BE BURN AWARE
Prevention and good first aid are key to reducing the number of burns and scalds occurring each year, especially in children and the elderly.
The second National Burn Awareness Day - 21st October 2015.
The intention of the first day last year was to start low key and see how things developed. Children’s Burns Trust is working with the British Burn Association to grow the momentum and reach an even wider audience this year. We are exploring ways to work collaboratively on this, and already have the support of, amongst others, the Government’s Fire Kills campaign and the Chief Fire Officers Association. Many other agencies and charities are also keen to be involved.
We would invite you to set up an awareness activity on National Burn Awareness Day, and to publicise it in your community. The cumulative impact of targeted activities taking place across the country will, it is hoped:
• Help to raise the awareness of the shocking number of people burned each and every day – the vast majority of which are preventable.
• Promote good first aid
