Never Mix - Accelerants Campaign

The ANZBA National Prevention Committee in conjunction with the Julian Burton Burns Trust has developed a "Never Mix" Accelerants Campaign. This campaign is targeted at burns prevention associated with flame/fire which accounts for over 60% of burn related injuries in adults. Over 60% of these are related to the misuse of accelerants.

This project was made possible by the generous support of the Clipsal National Community Grants Program, BHP Billiton, SA State Government and the Fay Fuller Foundation.

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.
