HOT WEATHER AND VEHICLES - DEADLY COMBINATION FOR KIDS
Heat is much more dangerous to children than to adults. When left in a hot vehicle, a young child's core body temperature may increase three to five times faster than that of an adult, possibly causing permanent injury or death. Safe Kids USA and General Motors created the "Never Leave Your Child Alone" program to educate families on the dangers kids face in hot vehicles. Teach children not to play in, on, or around vehicles. Never leave a child unattended in a vehicle, even with the window slightly open. Always lock a vehicle's doors and trunk, especially at home. And place something that you will need at your next stop, such as a purse, your lunch, gym bag, or briefcase, on the floor of the backseat where the child is sitting. This simple act could help prevent you from accidentally forgetting a child. For more information, call 618-651-2757.
