Burns are common and can occur in the variety of ways, including from a hot pan in the kitchen, from grabbing a hot metal tool at work, or even from electricity or a chemical spill. When a burn does occur, you might have to provide first aid to a burn or yourself. However, knowing how to deliver first aid for a burn can be completed because the type and severity of the burn will each affect the kind of first aid provided.
