Over 2,000 people educated at Tunarama Festival 2018

Our last Tunarama Festival over the Australia Day weekend was very successful! We educated over 2,000 people about burns prevention and burns first aid across the four days. Our magic tap was a crowd pleaser allowing us to draw people in and educate on correct first aid for burns. A BIG thanks to all our wonderful volunteers who trekked across to Port Lincoln for the Tunarama Festival!!

 

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.
