#HotVehicles are not #BabySitters
In 2018, 51 Children died from heatstroke in a hot, locked vehicle.
I think everyone will agree that too many Children have lost their lives in HOT CARS.
The average number of U.S. child vehicular heat stroke deaths is 38 per year. (one every 9 days)
Eighty‐eight percent (88%) of children who have died from vehicular heat stroke are age 3 and younger.
Fifty‐four percent (54%) of heat stroke deaths in vehicles involve children age one and younger.
See a child alone in a car? Get involved! Call 911 ASAP. #HeatstrokeKills #LookBeforeYouLock
The summer of 2016, Blair Corbett, Founder of Ark of Hope for Children, and I put our heads together and came up with an effective way to slow, and hopefully stop this killer of Our Children.
- Share this with everyone
- Use and share Our Hashtag: #HotVehicles are not #BabySitters
- Set a “TASK” with alarm in smartphone every time you drive Child/Children, set alarm 10-30 minutes early before arrival at destination to drop off Child/Children (depending on distance).
- DO NOT TURN OFF ALARM UNTIL CHILD/CHILDREN ARE DROPPED OFF, CONTINUE TO HIT SLEEPER, SET AT 5 MINUTES, UNTIL TASK IS COMPLETED.
The difference between life or death is minutes in a hot car. #HeatstrokeKills #LookBeforeYouLock
