The Epidemic of Liquid and Steam Burns

Children and Older Adults Most At-Risk

Each year, over 450,000 burn injuries occur in the United States that are serious enough to require medical treatment.

Between 2007 and 2013, the proportion of burn center admissions due to scald burns increased from 29.8% to 33.7%.

Join us in the fight to prevent severe burn and scald injuries!

 Tips to Stay Safe

  • Set your water heater at 120 degrees F/48 degrees C or just below the medium setting.
  • Use a thermometer to test the water coming out of your bath water tap.
  • Run your hand through bath water to test for hot spots.
  • Use back burners and turn pot handles toward the back of the stove so children cannot pull them down.
  • Use oven mitts when cooking or handling hot food and drinks.
  • Stir and test food cooked in the microwave before serving. Open heated containers away from you from back to front.
  • Keep children away from the stove when cooking by using a safety gate for younger children and marking with tape a 3-foot “no-kid zone” for older children.
  • Keep hot drinks away from the edge of tables and counters and avoid using tablecloths and placemats.
  • Use a “travel mug” with a tight-fitting lid for all hot drinks.
  • Never hold or carry a child while you have a hot drink in your hand.
