Ambassadors

Burn injury devastates lives and has an impact in all areas of a burn survivor's life from their social interactions with family and friends, being out in public and managing the curiosity of others and navigating the world of work with often new and debilitating physical limitations.

Our Ambassadors have all experienced the trauma of a burn injury. Not only have they survived the experience, they have maintained their strength of character and positive outlook on life. Their stories are truly inspirational. Please see Carol's story below. We look forward to bringing more stories to you soon.

FIRST AID QUICK GUIDE
In an emergency call 000
1. REMOVE
Remove any clothing and jewellery from the affected area to allow effective cooling of the burn.
2. COOL
Cool the burn under cool running water for 20 minutes - this will stop the burning process and also help ease the pain.
3. COVER
Cover the burn with a clean lint free cloth or if it is a large area, cover loosely with cling wrap to lessen the chance of infection.
4. SEEK
Seek medical advice if the burn is larger than a 20 cent piece or on the face, hands, feet or groin area.
