Burn Prevention

Shriners Hospitals for Children-Northern California wants to remind children and families that prevention is the best medicine.

“Our burn team is devoted to helping children with devastating burn injuries survive and thrive, and we are equally devoted to teaching parents, children and the community how to prevent injuries,” said David Greenhalgh, M.D., chief of burns at Shriners Hospitals for Children – Northern California. “We are constantly examining new ways to educate the community about fire danger and provide information on how to prevent injuries. When it comes to burn injuries, prevention is the best medicine.”


As part of its Be Burn Aware campaign, Shriners Hospitals for Children has put safety tips and burn prevention information at your fingertips. You may access and download prevention information online here.
