Vehicles quickly become too hot to survive.
Even on relatively mild days, vehicles can reach life-threatening temperatures quickly.

Hot-Car Awareness -- Brought to you by [[data:sponsor_name:""]]

Even on relatively mild days, vehicles can reach life-threatening temperatures quickly.

A child's body heats up 3-5 times faster than an adult body.

The inside of a vehicle heats up VERY quickly! Even with the windows cracked, the temperature inside a car can reach 125 degrees in minutes. 80% of the increase in temperature happens in the first 10 minutes.

A child is at a high-risk of heatstroke within 15 minutes of being left in a car–even if the weather is only in the 70’s.

What you can do

Have an action plan for a “break in your routine".

Recognizing even a short-notice routine break is critical. Have a set plan for calling each other to confirm drop-off or pickup.

Adopt the “Left-Shoe Reminder” and the “Bag in the Back” habit.

Look before you lock!

Make “Look Before You Lock” a routine. Be sure that all occupants leave the vehicle when unloading; above all, do not overlook sleeping babies who are the most frequent vehicular heatstroke victims.
