Fire accidents are unexpected because they cause great destruction and possible loss of life. When a fire accident happens, we generally attempt to treat the victim quickly. However, improper first aid decisions may complicate the injury of the burn victim. Hence, let us  have a quick look of the proper first aid methods and materials in this blog:

  • Extinguish the fire and do not allow any person to go inside of the particular area.
  • Remove smoldering materials and burned clothing.
  • Cover the burn area using a clean cloth or non-adhesive bandage.
  • Do not use cream, medications, butter, ice, fluffy cotton, ointments, and oil spray.
  • Arate the victim’s toes and fingers.
  • Call 9-1-1 immediately.

Observe the victims breathing, pulse, and blood pressure continuously until the ambulance arrives.
