BBA National Burn Awareness Day Oct 2016

Support for the National Burn Awareness Day on 19th Oct 2016 had a wide base and the range of activities were impressive. The Children’s Burns Trust (CBT) worked with the British Burn Association (BBA) to grow the momentum and reach an even wider audience exploring ways to work collaboratively with support from, amongst others: Child Accident Prevention Trust, Electrical Safety First, the Government’s Fire Kills campaign and the Chief Fire Officers Association. Many other agencies and charities were also involved in using iBID data to spread the message about the importance of burn injury prevention.

 

CFOA Conference Feb 2016

The conference of the Chief Fire Officers Association focused on the development of the Fire and Health initiative, presented by Geoff Harris as vice-chair of the Strategic Health Group.  This was supported by evidence from an iBID presentation outlining the methodology for the identification of vulnerable subgroups of the population and the means of monitoring burn injuries in the community.

 

National Fire Sprinklers Network, Oct 2015

It was opportune to present iBID data concerning the flame injury problem to the National Fire Sprinklers Network in Derbyshire on the same day as the National Burn Awareness Day 2015.  Fruitful discussions were had concerning the utility of burn injury information to support the argument for a widespread use of water sprinklers in domestic residences.
