In the lead-up to summer and Christmas, South Australians are being warned about the dangers of portable pools.
The ‘Don’t Duck Out, Make It SAFE’ initiative is in response to statistics showing that on average one child dies from drowning in a portable pool every year, with others needing hospital treatment and some suffering permanent brain damage.
The National Burns Awareness Month (1-30 June) aims to drive greater awareness amongst the Australian community of burns prevention and the correct first aid treatment for burns.
National Burns Awareness Month is an initiative of Kidsafe, Australia’s leading community organisation dedicated to child injury prevention, and held in June each year as there is a significantly increased risk of burns during winter.
With the support of Burnaid® gel, it will be hosting a series of national educational and awareness initiatives throughout the month.
Throughout June, Kidsafe invites you to raise awareness of burns prevention and correct first aid by posting on social media.
