Burn and Fire Prevention Day at the MCH: October 28, 2010

Each year, the MCH Trauma Centre sees approximately 200 children and teens with burn injuries. Close to half of all burn injuries treated in the emergency department are scald injuries. Most of these are preventable. It is important to be aware of the risks and to follow the safety recommendations.
On October 28, 2010 between 9:30 am and 2:30 pm, members of MCH Trauma will be answering questions in the 2B clinic area about various aspects of burn trauma. Safety products for the house will be given out, thanks to Dorel Industries Inc.’s generous donations. The Montreal Fire Department will be present to answer questions about fire prevention: smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguishers, fire escape plan and more.
Come join us for an informative and fun filled day and a chance to enter a draw for great prizes.
