Dan’s Fund for Burns (DFFB) is working towards establishing a UK-wide Burn Support Network and has appointed Ms Jennifer Fitt as UK Burn Support Network Project Manager.
Mr Ken Dunn, the BBA Prevention Sub-Committee Chair is delighted to report the success of the Burn Awareness Day.
Hospitals, schools and play groups participated in the day and activities included surveys, cake sales, and park to park “hopping”. There was good coverage by social media and radio and TV played a prominent role with the burn services. A National Burn Awareness Card was released which highlighted the “Three C’s” Burn First Aid Message.
The Fire & Rescue Service supported the burn services and offered advice on fancy dress costumes, firework safety and house safety checks. Charities displayed information links on their websites and used social media to raise awareness.
The Prevention Sub-Committee would like to applaud the efforts of all those involved in making the 2015 Burn Awareness Day a huge success.
A full report on the activities held on the day is available here: Prevention Report: Burn Awareness Day 2015.pdf
