National Heat Awareness Day
It’s not even summer yet, and already two children have died this year from heatstroke in vehicles. To promote National Heat Awareness Day, the Kids and Cars group is launching a Facebook campaign offering safety tips for protecting children from heat-related injuries. 37 children die of heatstroke in vehicles every year. In just a matter of minutes, cars reach deadly temperatures. Even the most responsible parents can unknowingly leave their child in a vehicle. Experts say check your backseat and look before you lock.
