Be Burn Aware

Be Burn Aware is our year-round campaign that kicks off each February during Burn Awareness Week.

Our focus is on preventing burn injuries in the home because most preventable burn injuries occur in residences. The campaign includes children’s activity books, information on basic home safety for adults and educational videos for the entire family. The materials are designed to be a resource to firefighters, teachers, parents and others concerned with the safety and well-being of children.

Please be safe…Be Burn Aware!

Boots N' Brewster: The Burn Awareness Pair

Audiencia:

¡Oh! ¡Ah! ¡Oh!

Boots:

¡Brewster! ¡Uf! Eso estuvo cerca. No deberías correr o jugar en la... ¡Vaya! No debes correr o jugar en la cocina, especialmente cuando alguien está cocinando, puedes quemarte con la estufa o el horno. Es importante mantener las ollas, sartenes y cables de alimentación alejados del borde del mostrador. ¡Se te puede caer alguna y quemarte o puedes electrocutarte! De hecho, todos los electrodomésticos deben mantenerse a una distancia segura.

Boots:

Brewster. El microondas solo se usa para calentar alimentos, que debemos colocar en un recipiente apto para microondas. Bueno, supongo que eso es comida, Brewster. Si tan solo hiciéramos unas tostadas. ¡Brewster! ¿No deberías comprobar la temperatura del agua antes de entrar? Recuerda, Brewster, el agua a más de 120 grados puede causar quemaduras graves. Cuando llenes la tina, primero abre el agua fría y luego agrega agua caliente hasta que esté templada. Asegúrate de sentarte en el lado opuesto de la canilla, lejos de los grifos. Nunca debes usar dispositivos electrónicos cerca del agua. ¿No es cierto? ¡Brewster!

Boots:

Los aparatos eléctricos cerca del agua pueden ser tan peligrosos como el fuego. Hasta el secador de pelo, Brewster. Tendrás que esperar hasta que salgas. ¡Brewster! ¿Qué estás haciendo? Esta lata roja contiene gasolina. Nunca juegues con eso, especialmente si hay llamas abiertas o fósforos cerca. Se supone que solo debe usarse para hacer funcionar un motor y para nada más. De hecho, nunca se la debe almacenar dentro de la casa. Si alguna vez sientes olor a gasolina, abandona el área y cuéntale a un adulto. Recuerda, la gasolina es inflamable.

Boots:

Y si hay una emergencia, asegúrate de conocer el plan de escape del hogar en caso de incendio. Plan de escape en caso de incendio Plan de escape en caso de incendio Debe haber dos salidas en cada habitación y un lugar de reunión designado a una distancia segura. Además, pregúntales a tus padres si tu casa tiene detectores de humo. ¡Y recuerda siempre llamar al 911 de emergencia! ¿Qué es ese sonido? Ah. Supongo que, después de todo, estaba escuchando el plan de escape en caso de incendio.
