Burn Awareness Month Is February

Fire Damage Burn Awareness Month Is February Practice Burn Awareness!

We thought it was a good time to share some tips that could keep you and your family safe from getting burned.

Scalds are one of the leading causes of burns in children under the age of 9 in the United States.

  • To prevent your children from being scalded by hot water make sure that you are checking the temperature of their bath water before placing them in the bathtub.
  • To ensure that your water won't be too hot adjust your Hot Water Heater to no more than 120 degrees F so that the chance of having water hot enough to scald someone is drastically reduced.
  • When cooking, make sure you turn your pot handles in over the counters so that they don't get knocked over by you or your kids by accident.

If you do get burned the best thing you can do first is to place the burned area under cool (not cold) water for a few minutes to lessen the severity of the burn. 

If any scalds are from the result of a fire and the damage is too much for you to clean yourself, call SERVPRO (309) 637-7300

In recent years, many different types of disasters have affected the United States. 

Flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfires, and blizzards are natural disasters that can threaten your home, business, and community. 

Now is the time to think about the basics, things you will need in advance of an emergency; how you will communicate, what supplies you will need to keep in your home, car or office.

Build an emergency supply kit to ensure your family is equipped and ready for any type of disaster. The more you know about what to do in an emergency, the more confident and secure you will feel in your abilities to manage through a disaster.
