The National Burns Association of South Africa (NBASA) has some important information to share on burns awareness and safety.
Burns awareness and safety at home:
-Have working smoke alarms in your home
-Have an ESCAPE plan
-Use quick-release devices on security-barred windows
-Learn at least two escape routes/emergency exits from each room.
ARM yourself with KNOWLEDGE:
-Use the correct equipment (fire extinguishers in the kitchen, etc.)
-Keep Burnshield products for burns
-Call 10177 for help in a fire situation or 112 on a cell phone.
-Do not overload electrical circuits, especially extension cords
