- Run cold water over the affected area for at least 10 minutes.
- The person could be in shock so it’s important to keep him/her warm.
- Once the burn has been cooled for at least 15 minutes, Burnfree dressing. Check out our Firework First Aid Kit from as little as £6.90 which contains Burn Dressings and Burn Gels.
If the person has a severe burn calls 999 straight away. Whilst you wait start cooling the burn under cold water, if it is a large burn use the shower.
- Touch the burn

Fireworks and bonfires release sparks and debris, which can land in the eye and be painful. Always wash your hands then use Eyewash Pods to clean out your eye. Buy them here from only £4.75.
