Our new infographic shows what parents and caregivers need to know about heatstroke.
Avoid heatstroke-related injury and death by never leaving a child alone in a car, not even for a minute. And make sure to keep your car locked when you’re not inside so kids don’t get in on their own.
Keep a stuffed animal or other memento in your child’s car seat when it’s empty, and move it to the front seat as a visual reminder when your child is in the back seat. Or place and secure your phone, briefcase or purse in the backseat when traveling with your child.
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.
