Posted:Ok, I swear this isn't a plug or a grab for attention. (Ok, so it's a plug, but it's because I care about you all).

Under the "Information" tab on the bar to the left, click on "Health & Safety." In there, there's an article that I wrote on First Aid for burns. Or you can just click here.

Please, please print out a copy of this article and keep it with your fire gear.

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:Rabid Dog,

Third degree burns are the most rare type, but they can happen. I'd imagine that the most likely situations would be: 1) Getting splashed with burning fuel and 2) having a lit chain toy (like a poi) wrap around a limb.

As you can imagine, a third degree burn basically involves the skin getting cooked through, so it does take some extended exposure to the heat to happen.

So I'd say that a third degree burn is unlikely, but you should still know the appropriate first aid for it.
