Children and Older Adults Most At-Risk
Each year, over 450,000 burn injuries occur in the United States that are serious enough to require medical treatment.
Between 2007 and 2013, the proportion of burn center admissions due to scald burns increased from 29.8% to 33.7%.
Join us in the fight to prevent severe burn and scald injuries!
Our National Scald Prevention Campaign is designed to help fire and life safety educators, burn clinicians and injury prevention professionals generate greater awareness and prevention about scald injuries in and around homes.
