In any emergency situation people begin to panic and sometimes it leads to doing the wrong things. But knowing exactly what to do in the face of emergency can be life saving. ..
When you or someone gets burns…
1. Cool the burnt area under running water. Where the tap is not flowing, you can fetch water and poor directly until the hand for 10 minutes.
2. Cover the affected area with a clean film, plastic bag or wet gauze. The reason for the film or plastic is because people who experience burns loose a lot of fluid which can lead to dehydration.
Be careful not to cover it too tightly.
3. It’s time for the hospital! Now that you’ve completed step one and two, you need to report to the hospital.
