Every summer, local hospital emergency rooms fill with people seeking treatment for summer burn injuries. The Burn Institute urges people to think about how to prevent fire and burn injuries this summer.
Always apply a sunscreen of 25 SPF or greater when going outdoors.
Serious sunburns can occur even when it is cloudy.
Wear dark sunglasses to protect your eyes, and wear a broad brimmed hat to protect your head and neck.
Always supervise a barbecue grill when in use.
Keep children and pets away from grills.
