Fires are burning hotter and faster than ever given the new chemicals used on furniture and else where around the house or business. Burns can be a severe hazard for firefighters. They can affect muscles, tendons, and even bones, leading to nerve damage or damage to internal organs. Burn injuries can arise under countless circumstances when fighting a fire including equipment failure and prolonged exposure to intense heat that permeates the gear.
Burn injuries can range from first-degree to fourth-degree and can include scald burns, flame burns and contact burns. They also can be progressive in nature, meaning some transform from a minor to a major injury over the course of time.
