Take the Kids Out of the Car!


Washington, D.C. – With summer temperatures heating up across the country – parents and caregivers must be reminded to never leave a child unattended inside a hot vehicleHeatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash, vehicle-related deaths for childrenOn average, every 10 days a child dies from heatstroke in a vehicle

 Safe Kids is working with partners around the country to raise awareness about this   preventable tragedy. When the sun is out, and even on cloudy days, the inside of a car can become much hotter than the temperature outside. In just 10 minutes a car can heat up 19 degrees. On an 80 degree day, the inside of a closed car can quickly exceed 100 degrees. Cracking a window does not help keep the inside of a car cool

 Children are at great risk for heatstroke because a child’s body heats up three to five times faster than an adult’s. When the body’s temperature reaches 104 degrees, the internal organs start to shut down. When it reaches 107 degrees, the child can die.  


So what can parents and caregivers do to reduce the number of deaths from heatstroke?   One way is to remember ACT.


A: Avoid heatstroke-related injury and death by never leaving your child alone in a car, not even for a minute. And make sure to keep your car locked when you’re not in it so kids don’t get in on their own.


C: Create reminders by putting something in the back of your car next to your child such as a briefcase, a purse or a cell phone that is needed at your final destination. This is especially important if you’re not following your normal routine.


T: Take action. If you see a child alone in a car, call 911. Emergency personnel want you to call. They are trained to respond to these situations. One call could save a life.


Safe Kids President and CEO Kate Carr is available for LIVE/Taped radio interviews to discuss this growing problem and to offer tips/reminders for parents and caregivers on ways to protect their children from the dangers of heatstroke as a result of being left inside a vehicle.
