Prevent Scalding Injuries By Following These Tips

Posted by

In order to prevent childhood scalding here are a few great tips:

  • Set your water heater at 120 degrees for a medium setting.
  • When filling the tub for a child use a thermometer to judge if it's too hot.
  • Run your hand under the water before allowing your child to get in the tub.
  • Wear long oven mitts when handling hot food
  • Turn all pot handles inward
  • Use a Stove Guard to keep little ones from hot stove burners.

If you do burn your skin: Run cold water over it for 3 minutes or more. Don't use butter or ice and call 911 if the burn looks really bad.

Be safe and be aware!
