DID YOU KNOW?

Every 10 days a child dies from being left in a hot car.

A: Avoid heatstroke-related injury and death by never leaving your child alone in a car, not even for a minute. 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 that you need at your final destination, such as a briefcase, a purse or a cell phone. This is especially important if you’re not following your normal routine. Many child heat stroke deaths occur because parents and caregivers become distracted and exit their vehicle without their child.

T: Take action. If you see a child alone in a car, call 911. One call could save a life.

Our mission is to prevent childhood injury through education. On the site you will find general safety information as well as North Carolina & Special Needs specific information.
