HOT water can cause serious injury or death, especially to kids!

HOT water can cause serious injury or death, especially to kids!

Please take a minute and read the following information from childrenshealthnetwork.org

The leading cause of deaths and injuries to children at home is accidents. Hot water burns can put a child in the hospital or even cause death. The burns happen most often in the bathroom and tend to be more severe because a larger portion of the body is burned.

Children ages 4 and younger are at the greatest risk for death from a burn. They may get badly burned because they are not able to get out of water is that is too hot. Here are some tips:
•When using tap water, always turn on the cold water first, and then add hot water. When you turn the water off, turn the hot water off first. Teach your child to do the same.
•Always test the water before your child gets into the tub or shower.
•Don't let young children to touch faucet handles during a bath.
•Make sure all faucets are properly labeled “HOT” or “COLD.”
•Don’t use a hot steam vaporizer. It can cause steam burns. Use a cool mist vaporizer instead.
•Never leave a child alone in the bathroom for any reason. They could get burned by hot water or drown.
•Set the thermostat on your water heater on low or no higher than 120°F (49°C) or lower. A child can be scalded in 2 to 3 seconds in water that is only 5 degrees warmer than this
