Look before you Lock!

Last year, 42 children died from hyperthermia, or heat stroke while in automobiles in the United States. Children’s has joined the national initiative “ACT” to educate the public about leaving a child in a hot car. Please share the following infographic to help us keep our kids safe this summer. Avoid heat stroke-related injury or death by never leaving your child alone in a car, not even for a minute. Create reminders – place something you’ll need like a cell phone next to the car seat. Remember to always look before you lock!

Children’s of Alabama encourages you to take action if you see a child alone in a car, call 911.
