Every year, too many Tasmanians suffer unnecessary and often severe burns during the colder months – especially children between 13 and 24 months old.

Burns injuries can require scar management follow up for many years and further surgical scar revision.

Prevention is always better than cure, and by educating yourself and your loved ones you can help prevent burns.
