Campaign: To encourage young people to take fire safety seriously

In March this year, while attending a campfire party with my friends, I was severely burnt when someone decided to pour paint thinner onto the flames.

 

There was a big explosion and all you could see was a wall of fire.

 

In a split second, I was hospitalised for weeks and scarred for life.

 

I  had to undergo three skin graft operations and 25 per cent of my body was burnt.

 

To prevent others from going through this traumatic experience, I’m working on a Fixers campaign to show young people the importance of taking fire safety seriously.

 

My injuries could have been much worse and I consider myself lucky.

 

I hope my message and story will encourage others to act responsibly around fires.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

India Johnson

Nathan Taylor

Rebecca McCluskey
