Stop! Drop! and Roll! Campaign
Stop! Drop! and Roll! is not a new dance step, nor is it a maneuver on the football field. It is a plain old common sense solution that can prevent serious burns and save lives.
A number of burn victims we have encountered in the recent months were unaware of what to do when their clothing caught fire. They have sustained severe injuries and are suffering long term effects of their slow recovery.
The Chaya Malka Burn Foundation has launched a campaign to educate everyone how to react if their clothing should, Heaven forbid, catch fire. The technique is as simple as it sounds:[notification type=”alert-danger” close=”false” ]
Stop! Where ever you are. Motion will increase the air that fuels the fire.
Drop! Onto the floor or the ground, the faster, the better.
Roll! Actually roll your body back and forth to smother the flames.[/notification]
How can you help with this campaign?
- Discuss the Stop! Drop! and Roll! method with everyone you come in contact with today.
