It’s that time of year again and we want you to stay safe around fireworks and especially those sparklers.

 

Stand Clear and ensure you wear your gloves!

 

Did you know that A&E receive approximately 1,000 people each year for treatment on Bonfire Night?!

 

So here’s a recap on treating burns!!!

1. Cool the burn by placing your hand/affected area under running cold water for a minimum of 10 minutes.

2. Remove jewellery and loose clothing very carefully and before the area starts to swell. If something is stuck to the burn, do not attempt to remove it!

3. Dress the burn by applying a sterile dressing that won’t stick to the affected area. Cling film is ideal.

 

*If the burn is severe call 999 or 122 for emergency assistance*

 

DO NOT:

– Cool the burn with ice

-Burst the blisters

– Touch the burn

OR

– Apply adhesive dressings, cream, ointments or fats

 

Have Fun! Stay Safe!

Have you seen the new AED signs yet?

NEW AED SIGNS

 

 

 

The Resuscitating Council (UK) have worked with the British Heart Foundation to develop new and improved AED location signs.

The aim is to ensure more people understand what AEDs are used for and to encourage people to use them.

A supporting information poster has also been designed to reinforce the following key messages:

• Anyone can use an AED – you do not need prior medical first aid training.

• It’s easy to use – just follow the instructions.

• It is for use on an unconscious person who is not breathing normally.

Standard sign for AEDs

The new AED location signs make the following changes to the current one:

• It changes the lightning bolt icon into a stylised ECG heart trace – respondents overwhelmingly said they would be more likely to use a sign with this icon on.

• The description is changed to “Defibrillator – Heart Restarter” – respondents said they thought this term would most encourage them to use the device.

• A supine person was added, showing the suggested placement of the defibrillator pads, to reinforce (by way of a strong visual cue) how the device should be used.

Rigid, laminated copies of both signs are available in our shop
