Take Action to Prevent Heatstroke
The Danger of Heatstroke
Over the past two years, more than 100 children have died from being unattended in a hot car. These deaths were preventable. As summer temperatures rise, more kids are at risk. Help stop these tragedies from happening by working with us to prevent heatstroke. Click on the tabs for helpful tools to get you started.
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.
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.
