Emergency shower + eyewash
The emergency shower is useful for chemical or thermal burns. User instructions are very simple and displayed close by. If possible, never use fire extinguishers on people.
A fire blanket can be wrapped around a person on fire. It replaces the emergency shower where it is not available, but it is not as efficient (no cooling, and not effective for chemical burns) User instructions are shown on the container.
