With warmer weather approaching, remember not to leave kids or pets locked in the car. Even if you only have to run into a store for a minute, don’t leave your kids in the car.
In 2018, 52 children died in hot cars. It was the deadliest year on record in the past 20 years. Since 1998, almost 800 children have died from vehicular heatstroke; 24% occurred in employer parking lots while the parent or caregiver was at work. Parents and caregivers can act immediately to end these preventable deaths.
