Home Safe Home is an original video-based educational program that identifies to the caregivers of infants and toddlers the most common causes of burn injury to their children. The video segment, hosted by the nurse, takes place in a home with a young family. The parents have just come home with a new baby, and have a toddler. The nurse takes us through the house showing potential dangers. Parents are made aware of the various types of burn injuries including: scalds (the most common among infant and toddlers); flame and inhalation; electrical; contact; and chemical. Preventive actions are explained for each type of burn hazard. In addition, parents are made aware that their own attentive behavior can contribute to the safety of their children.
The video component, along with all associated literature, is produced in both English and Spanish language versions and in both DVD and streaming video formats. For a free copy, please contact the Fire & Burn Foundation office at 909-580-6339.
