Burns and Scalds

It is important to act quickly in the event of a burn or scald and in a life threatening emergency, dial 999. 


If someone is injured, you should:

  • first check that you and the injured person aren't in any danger, and, if possible, make the situation safe
  • if necessary, dial 999 for an ambulance when it's safe to do so
  • carry out basic first aid
