Child Vehicular Heatstroke Awareness

Child Vehicular Heatstroke Awareness and Prevention

Baby in carseat

On average, 38 children die in hot cars each year from heat-related deaths after being trapped inside motor vehicles. Even the best of parents or caregivers may unknowingly leave a sleeping baby in a car; and the end result can be injury or even death.

Sadly, this year five children have already died from heatstroke inside vehicles and summer is still two months away.

Protecting children is everyone's business.


If you see a child alone in a car, call 911.

Cars reach deadly temperatures in minutes. Learn More.

Please show your support by spreading the messages of awareness and prevention of vehicular heatstroke across all social media platforms.

Be sure to use the hashtags #heatstrokekills and #lookbeforeyoulock
