Quick, well applied treatment may even avoid the patient having any tissue damage at all. 

Be prepared for burn injuries—large and small!

Burn injuries should be cooled immediately, otherwise the heat will continue to destroy the surrounding and underlying tissue and may progress a partial thickness (second degree) burn into a full thickness (third degree) burn injury.

All electrical burns require medical attention.

But when seconds count, having Water-Jel products in convenient locations will go a long way in easing the pressure of the moment, as well as the burn victim’s injury and pain. Water-Jel products are effective, versatile and approved for emergency first aid burn treatment in a pre-hospital setting.
