When the bodies skin and flesh is exposed to open flame or a hot object, it is said that the body has suffered a "Thermal Injury." In the case of thermal injuries the extent of the injury is proportional to the size and intensity of the flame. While initial transport to the nearest medical facility is critical, transport to a regional burn center is critical for improving chances of long term survival. Extinguishing the flame is only the first step for survival, as the loss of skin and tissue often result in death even days and weeks after the initial burns.
