Guidelines to prevent burns

  1. Smokers should dispose off cigarettes stubs carefully. Cigarettes are a common cause of fires.

  2. Keep match-boxes and cigarette lighters away from children.

  3. Allow children to play with fireworks only under adult supervision.

  4. Never drink hot liquids while holding a baby. The baby may reach for it, spill it and cause burns.

  5. Always test the temperature of bathwater for a child. Children should not touch the hot water tap, as there is a risk of getting scalded by the hot water.
