car heatstroke safety

As summer temperatures continue to climb across the country, it’s important to remember that while these summer days are great for the pool and the beach, they’re not so good for the inside of cars, which can raise to deadly temperatures in a very short period of time. 

Sadly, since 1998, at least 910 children across the United States have died from heatstroke.

With spring cleaning already underway, the American Cleaning Institute and Safe Kids Worldwide have teamed up to remind parents and caregivers to be especially attentive about keeping cleaning products out of the reach and sight of children.

The beginning of the school year can be overwhelming and exciting at the same time, both for kids and parents.

Here are a few ways to make safety a part of your back-to-school plan.
