Cool Runnings Info

Many people get burned each day in Australia. We want to try and change this. We’ve developed a new app to help raise awareness of some of these burn injuries with suggestions on how to prevent them. With your help we can reduce the number of burns in Australia, and promote best-practice burn first aid.

The Cool Runnings app provides information on how to prevent burn injuries through games and quizzes. You can earn rewards and win prizes for your involvement by answering the quiz questions, or sharing the information with your friends and family through social media. Simply download the Cool Runnings app, then the following Monday you’ll start going through the six-week campaign. Each weekly module has a specific focus and consists of a themed animated video, infographic, pop quiz and mission. Get involved and earn points and rewards for your efforts.



Cool Runnings is a collaboration between Australian technology company iPug, the Centre for Children’s Burns and Trauma Research, Queensland University of Technology, and the Australian Government’s Cooperative Research Centres Program.


Cool Runnings is a world-first public health campaign that brings together cutting edge research and technology to educate up to 1,000,000 Australians about burns prevention and first aid. The campaign, which begins in May 2017 will last for 12 months and be rolled out across Australia.
