Specialised Burn Unit Equipment

The Julian Burton Burns Trust in partnership with our corporate and community partners aims to reduce the incidence and impact of burn injury. Through continued funding of specialised burns equipment and services we can make a difference to the suffering of those impacted by burn injury and assist them on their road to recovery. Below are a few initiatives.

FIRST AID QUICK GUIDE
In an emergency call 000
1. REMOVE
Remove any clothing and jewellery from the affected area to allow effective cooling of the burn.
2. COOL
Cool the burn under cool running water for 20 minutes - this will stop the burning process and also help ease the pain.
3. COVER
Cover the burn with a clean lint free cloth or if it is a large area, cover loosely with cling wrap to lessen the chance of infection.
4. SEEK
Seek medical advice if the burn is larger than a 20 cent piece or on the face, hands, feet or groin area.
