St John's Ambulance tips on staying safe this bonfire night!

If someone has a burn or scald;

  • Run it under cold water for at least 10 minutes. You need to completely cool their skin to prevent pain, scarring or further damage.

  • If the burn is on a child, or if you think its a serious burn (for example, if its deep, larger than the size of their hand, or on the face, hands or feet) call 999 for an ambulance.

  • Remove any jewellery or clothing near the burn (unless the item is stuck to the skin).

  • Don't pop any blisters or apply creams - this can make it worse.

  • Once cooled, cover the burn with cling film or a plastic bag.

  • If necessary, treat them for shock, by laying them down with their legs raised and supported above the level of their heart.
