Burns and Fires
If someone should sustain a scald injury, the Burn Center recommends the following:
1. Remove any wet clothing and run cool water over the burn to slow down the burning process.
2. Avoid using home remedies or ice which often makes a burn worse.
3. Seek immediate medical attention by calling 9-1-1, visiting your physician or seeking emergency care at a hospital/burn center. Delaying treatment can result in a more serious injury.
