BFD offers tips on how to avoid burns during National Burn Awareness Week

The Bakersfield Fire Department is teaming up with the Memorial Hospital Grossman Burn Center to give tips on burn prevention as part of National Burn Awareness Week.

Most burn injuries occur in the home and quite often involve cooking or handling hot foods and liquids, according to the BFD.

They also say burn injuries happen quite often too small children and the elderly members so people should keep a close eye on those family members when they are handling hot items.

Another tip is always to make sure you are using proper safety gear when handling hot items fresh off of the stove or our of the oven.

National Burn Awareness Week runs through the end of this week.
