If clothing is on fire
Remember: stop, drop, wrap and roll.
Keep everyone as calm as possible.
Try to prevent the casualty from panicking or running – as any movement or breeze will fan the flames and make things worse.
Help the casualty drop to the ground and wrap them in a blanket, coat, or rug to smother the flames.
If clothing has caught fire it is more than likely that the burn will be severe.
Start cooling the burn immediately under cool running water, use a shower if the burns are large, but keep looking for signs of shock and be ready to treat it. Keep cooling the burn while waiting for professional help to arrive. Keep areas that are not burnt as warm and dry as possible to try and retain their body heat. Get medical help fast. Instruct a helper to dial 999 or 112 for an ambulance.
Whilst cooling, remove any constricting items such as jewellery or clothing from the affected area unless they are stuck to the burn. Wear sterile gloves if they are available
Touch the burn
Remove anything stuck to the burn
Use lotions, ointments or creams
