Action Plans for Burns

About 61% of burns occur at home. If you are burnt by a flame or splashed by hot liquid, run cool water across the area for 20 minutes. It’s important to keep the water running for that length of time. By doing so, you’ll have an 80% reduction in the size of the burn wound. Running cool water over the affected area will also reduce the likelihood of blisters forming. Burns Charity: How you can help The Day of Difference Foundation was established by Ron Delezio in honour of his daughter Sophie, who survived third degree burns to more than 85% of her body when a car crashed into her preschool in 2003. The paediatric charity buys essential hospital equipment and conducts research for children in intensive care. To donate, email or visit To familiarise yourself further with burn treatments, visit
