Fire Safety for Disabled Persons and Caregivers


Don't Play with Fire
Can you guess how many fires are started by kids every year?
2 or maybe 2000
Every year, children start nearly 100,000 fires that hurt people and cause a lot of damage.
That's why playing with fire - lighters, matches
or candles - is such a bad idea

Hot Water Burns Like Fire
Set the temperature of your hot water heater between 120 and 130 degrees F to prevent scalding burns. It is important to keep in mind that a full thickeness burn can occur after just 1 second of contact with water that is at 158 degrees F. Even at 130 degrees F, a full thickness burn can occur after 30 seconds of contact, but it takes 10 minutes of contact to get a full thickness burn if the water temperature is lowered to 120 degrees F.
