  • Keep pets indoors and close your curtains, also you can turn on the TV or radio to drown out the noises.
  • Make sure dogs/cats have somewhere to hide if needed.
  • Make sure pets are wearing a collar/microchipped if they are spooked and become lost.


  • Cool burns with cold water for at least 10 minutes.
  • Never put butter, oils, or ointments onto burns.
  • Cut around material stuck to the burn. Don’t pull it away.
  • Don’t touch the burn or any blisters.
  • Cover the burn with Clingfilm to keep clean.
  • If the burn is serious call 999.
  • Unless the burn is very minor, go to hospital. Don’t let that person eat or drink in case there is a need for anaesthetic.
