Always practice fire prevention. In the event that someone gets burned, follow these tips:
- Stop, drop and roll if your clothes catch fire to extinguish the flames.
- Cool the burned areas immediately with cool water. Do not use ice.
- Lay the victim flat. Remove jewelry and tight fitting clothing to the burned areas before swelling occurs.
- Apply a clean, dry dressing or cloth to the burned area. Cover the victim to keep them warm.
- Do not use ointments, sprays, first aid cream or butter.
- Seek medical attention, call 911, or go to the nearest emergency department or burn center.
