Never Leave your Child Alone in a Car
Sometimes your child is so silent in the back seat that you completely forget they are in the car with you! Other times, you are in such a rush to get in and out of the store or quickly draw some money from the ATM that you are tempted to just leave them in the car.
This is a serious problem! Leaving your child in a car alone is life threatening and can lead to injuries and even death. Small children are especially at risk because there body temperatures can rise three times faster than an adult’s body temp.
Did you know that when a child’s temperature reaches 107 degrees, they die? It is a scary fact, but every 8 days a child dies from heatstroke in a vehicle!
You can use these tips to stop the deaths...
Avoid heatstroke and death by always remembering it is never okay to leave your child in the car, even if you are just stepping out for a minute or two.
Create reminders by putting your bag or purse on the seat next to your child so you remember they’re in the car with you.
Take action. If you notice a child left alone in a car, especially if it is a hot car – call the police immediately!
