    So many acid attacks.

    Post by papa_umau on Thu Aug 03, 2017 11:36 am

    There have been so many acid attacks the public should be trained to treat them.

    People who are on the scene to witness acid attacks can play a vital role in minimising the harm to the victim, leading emergency doctors have said.

    Medics are calling for public education on how to deal with injuries caused by an acid attack following a spike in the life-changing assaults.

    After contaminated clothing is removed, it is ‘vital’ that the affected area is irrigated with copious amounts of water to remove the chemical, the experts said.

    Obviously the quicker this is treated with water the better, but we also must remember that these attacks can also be made with powerful alkaline substances too.

    Washing out with water works for both acid and alkaline substances but to chemically neutralise the material  it is only the paramedics or the hospital doctors that will know how to do that.

    Speed is in the essence.

    Yes, this seems to be the flavour of the month as far as criminality is concerned.

    There was a news report yesterday about gangs of thugs on mopeds going around robbing people and using acid as their threat weapon.

    What are the streets of Britain coming to ?

    Yes, this is a new one that the public and the police are going to have to tackle head on.

    Once we see these scroats getting REALLY heavy sentences we may see this particular crime subsiding.

    Until then WE are going to have to be the first responders to such attacks as time is of the essence when someone has had acid or alkaline substances thrown in their faces.
