    Stop. Drop. Roll

    If on Fire:

    • Stop, Drop, Cover and Roll
    • Smother the flames with a blanket
    • Remove person from heat source

    Next steps:

    • Be aware of dangers to yourself at all times
    • For all burns run cold (tap) water on it for at least 20 minutes
    • If running water is not available, wet several cloths and alternate them onto the burn every minute or two.
    • Do NOT use butter, oil, creams or ice, etc.
    • Ensure the rest of the body stays warm (wrap them in a blanket where required).
    • Remove clothing and jewelry as they can hold heat on the burn and jewelry can stop blood flow to the burn.
    • Seek medical attention for any burn bigger than a 20 cent coin, or that blisters or if there are any concerns.
