“I often obtain simple burns when cooking food,” Khassie Grande, Visayas Avenue Local Congregation Binhi secretary, shared. “There were times I just ignore being accidentally scalded with oil. I would just wash with soap and water the burned part.”

To her and fellow Binhi members from the Ecclesiastical District of Central, the online seminar dubbed “First Aid for Burns” that they attended on March 27, 2021 was timely and beneficial.

“I learned that minor burns must not be taken for granted. Doing so might lead to infection or worse,” Khassie added.

Brother Jenar Espiritu, Advanced Emergency Medical Technician at a hospital in V. Luna Ave., Diliman, Quezon City, served as the keynote speaker. He is also an officer of Christian Medical Dental and Paramedical Society (CMDPS) from the Local Congregation of Batasan Hills 1.

He first detailed the types of burns. Then he demonstrated to the young members the first aid to these, especially when they might be in actual emergency situations, highlighting the danger if such burns would not be treated right away.

“The activity informed us to know what to do in urgent situations, such as burn incidents,” said Renzo James Magnabijon, Binhi district officer and choir member from the Local Congregation of New Era University. “We hope to be cautious at all times mostly now that we are in a pandemic crisis.” — With reports from INC News Section
