For Child Care Providers

As a child care professional, you can help prevent heatstroke by educating yourself, your staff and parents about the dangers of heatstroke. Post a flyer in your facility and share safety tips with parents. You should also consider creating a program to alert parents if a child doesn’t show up to child care as expected. These efforts can save a life.


For First Responders

First responders are in a good position to make a huge difference in preventing heatstroke. By knowing the facts, posting flyers and sharing safety information with your colleagues and community, you can be on the front lines of reducing these tragedies.
