CHILD SAFETY AT HOME

Bullying Bullying is a problem that no child should have to put up with, but in Australia, statistics reveal that one in six school children are bullied each week. Children who are being bullied can do something about it. Here are some tips that might help: •

You should realise that the kids who are bullying you aren’t smart, even though they might think they are. Try to avoid bullies, but don’t make it too obvious.

Hang about in places where they don’t go—the library for instance—while you’re there you’ll be learning while they’re missing out.

Keep telling yourself that you’re doing OK at school and try to concentrate on your studies.

Talk to a friend or a teacher about it.

Talk to your parents and ask for their support.

FIRE SAFETY AT HOME

13

The major factors of fire danger levels are: 1. Fuels Fuels include grasses, bushes, leaves, twigs, ferns and trees. The danger level of these fuels is directly related to the moisture levels in the fuels. After recent rain the moisture level in many ground fuels is not sufficient to prevent ignition. Fuels in direct sunlight will dry out more than fuels in shaded areas and can be up to 30°C hotter. The higher the temperature of fuels the more likely they are to ignite and rapidly spread. 2. Topography Basically the steeper the grade the greater the fire danger. Fire can move very quickly uphill and can easily ignite homes situated on slopes, hill tops or ridges.

3. Weather The weather is the only factor over which we have no control. Long and dry heatwaves can easily dry out and heat up ground fuels. High wind will have the effect of greatly increasing both the speed and intensity of the fire. Many small fires have accelerated into major disasters in a very short time.

BURNS

19

Burns are caused by heat-contact with an open flame or a hot object; scalding by steam or hot liquid; or burning by friction. Follow DRABCPR If clothing catches alight, stop oxygen from feeding the fire. STOP the person from running around. DROP the person to the ground and wrap in a blanket; wool is best (do not use synthetic material). ROLL the person along the ground until the flames are smothered. MANAGE as for a thermal burn.

Thermal burns * Cool the burnt area. * If the burn is caused by a scald, quickly remove the person’s wet clothing from the affected area. * Hold the burnt area under cold running water for at least 20 minutes. * If a chemical burn - run cold water over burnt area for at least twenty minutes; remove contaminated clothing, (avoid contaminating yourself). * If a bitumen burn, run cold water over the burnt area for 30 minutes. * If the burn is to the eye, flush the eye with water for 20 minutes. * Remove clothing and jewellery from the burnt area - unless stuck. * Cover with non-adherent/burns dressing/sheet or plastic wrap. * Seek medical aid urgently. WARNING Do not apply lotions, ointment or fat to the burn . . . Do not touch the injured areas or burst any blisters. Do not remove anything sticking to the burn . . . If the burn is large or deep, manage the person for shock.
