RX Radio was invited to cover the ChildSafe seminar on burns safety which was held on the 23rd of August at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital. This is an annual campaign which sought to create an awareness in the prevention of child accidents, particularly burns. Young Reporter Hakeem interviewed various doctors, fire safety marshals, the executive director of Child Safe, Yolandi Baker, as well as a burns survivor, William Baartman. There are various prevention tips for children as well as parents. ChildSafe’s executive director expressed how a burn should be handled as well as the quickest way to help soothe a wound after a child has been unfortunately involved in a burn accident.
