Do your students know the correct steps for burns first aid?

Research indicates that only 10% of Australians who suffer a burn know correct first aid. National Burns Awareness Month 1-30 June, has been established by the Julian Burton Burns Trust and Burnaid to raise awareness of the correct first aid treatment for minor burns.

Building on our successful South Australian burns education program, BurnSafe, we are providing all schools nationally the opportunity to provide correct burns first aid knowledge to their students.
