Beware of Hot Surface Burns

Roughly 70,000 people went to hospital emergency departments because of contact burns in 2018 (National Electronic Injury Surveillance System-NEISS). To avoid the risks of contact burns on hot surfaces, practice these safety tips:

Always supervise children around hot objects. This includes tools like hair appliances that should be unplugged when not in use.

Have caution while cooking. Try using the stove back burners, always have hot pads available and turn off all devices when leaving the area. Remember to keep all pot handles turned back, away from the stove edge.

• Watch the surrounding area. Keep the space around hot objects clear of trip hazards. Wear shoes when walking on hot pavement or sand, and protect pets by keeping them away from these areas as well. Maintain a 3-foot “safety zone” around glass fireplace doors that can remain hot for 1 hour+ after use.

Learn more about burn protection by finding information and tips on the Ogden City Fire Department social media pages.

Ogden City is asking for public input for compiling the Five-Year Consolidated Plan for July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2025 (ConPlan). This plan helps to identify and prioritize housing, community development and economic development needs and strategies. The plan is submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a part of the funding process for the Community Development Block Grant and Home Investment Partnerships Grants. If awarded, those grants will be used to provide better housing and living environments within local neighborhoods and expand economic opportunities in the City. To get involved:

Emergency Preparedness: Get a Kit

Assembling and maintaining a portable 72-hour emergency kit is essential for emergency preparedness. Supplies that support the vital health and personal needs for each individual in a household should be included with the following tips.
