Second #BurnsAwarenessWeek gets major partner

A PROMOTIONAL safety week has attracted the support of a major partner ahead of its campaign launch on Wednesday October 25th

Buy Wise Be Safe, a South West based initiative, is highlighting the importance of burns awareness during Halloween and Bonfire Night and has attracted University Hospital Bristol NHS Trust to once again support its messaging.

The duo worked together in the summer, during Child Accident Prevention Week, and are forming ties again in the forthcoming campaign with safety videos that will be posted on the group’s social media accounts.

Messages from clinicians at the hospital, the South West’s specialist treatment centre for Paediatric Burns, will be posted throughout the #BurnsAwarenessWeek – which runs from October 25th to 29th.

During the four week period surrounding Bonfire Night admissions to A&E for burn related injuries increase substantially; so to help parents Buy Wise Be Safe has launched a Burns Awareness Week campaign offering great advice to keep youngsters safe.

Stuart Radnedge, spokesman for Buy Wise Be Safe, said, “The latest statistics show that every day more than 11 toddlers suffer serious burns and we feel this has to change.”

“With Halloween and Bonfire night just days away, the risk factor is increasing. But following our handy hints and tips can really help keep a young child in your care safe.”
