Today is National Heatstroke Prevention Day 2018!

Every year on average, 37 children die in hot cars in the US.  

What can you do??

  • Always keep cars locked & keys out of reach of children. If a child is missing – check in all cars!
  • Ask childcare to call you if your baby doesn’t show up as planned!
  • A car is not a babysitter. NEVER leave a child or animal alone inside a vehicle, not even for a minute!
  • See a child alone in a car? Get involved! Call 911 immediately
  • If you think it can’t happen to you, please think again.  (Ray Ray’s Story)
