Improper handling of fireworks can lead to a variety of injuries, from minor burns to the loss of a limb, or even death. Burns are by far the most common injuries, so we offer this information with the hope that you will never need to use it, but will be informed in the event you do need it.
Burns are among the most excruciatingly painful physical injuries. Even a relatively minor burn can be intensely painful. A burn occurs when the skin, and often other bodily organs, come in contact with heat, radiation, electricity, or chemicals for a period long enough to cause damage. Burns can affect many body parts aside from the site of the burn. Nerves, blood vessels, bones, muscles, and other areas may be involved when another part of the body is injured.
Burns are generally put into three categories. These classes are first, second, and third degree burns. The burn category indicates the severity of the burn along with the amount of body area covered by the burn injury.
FIRST DEGREE BURNS
SECOND DEGREE BURNS
THIRD DEGREE BURNS
