The Problem
Every 10 days, a child dies from heatstroke after being left alone in a hot vehicle. This occurs when the body isn’t able to cool itself quickly enough and the body temperature rises to dangerous levels. But these deaths are preventable.
What You Can Do
Safe Kids Worldwide and NHTSA are asking you to help us raise awareness about the dangers of kids and cars through a concerted day-long social media conversation. We are reaching out to our safety partners to tweet and post on Facebook every hour on the hour starting at 7 a.m. EST using the hashtag #heatstroke.
As the summer temperatures rise, the dangers for kids left in hot vehicles increases exponentially.

Please join us in helping keep kids safe from heatstroke.
