June is National Burn Awareness month, a joint initiative between Kidsafe and the Australia and New Zealand Burn Association. It aims to drive greater awareness of prevention and correct first aid treatment for burns.
The ACI Statewide Burn Injury Service (SBIS) is the largest burn service in the country and is actively involved in promoting prevention and first aid messages to the NSW community. Recently, we spoke to ABC Radio Sydney’s Focus program about the prevention of microwave-related burns. Anne Darton, SBIS Manager, talked about specific dangers and cautions with the use of microwaves and burn injuries.
