Help Protect Kids from Heatstroke: ACT

 

We will be experiencing some hot weather in Montgomery County, Maryland and the Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service has issued this reminder to help protect kids from heatstroke.

 

Reduce the number of deaths from heatstroke by remembering to ACT.

A: Avoid heatstroke-related injury and death by never leaving your child alone in a car, not even for a minute. And make sure to keep your car locked when you’re not in it so kids don’t get in on their own. 

C: Create reminders by putting something in the back of your car next to your child such as a briefcase, a purse or a cell phone that is needed at your final destination. This is especially important if you’re not following your normal routine.

T: Take action. 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. One call could save a life.

Water and gatorade and frequent rest periods is what is needed.  Heat Stroke is very dangerous.

Hi Roy and happy weekend to you and Dolores.  I'm so glad that you posted this. Just yesterday, as I was sitting in our car for a second waiting to get out, I thought about the children who are left in the backseat of cars.

The Waze app I use has a reminder when the car is turned off to check for the child in the backseat. I think this is smart.

Arizona loses children and pets each year being trapped in cars. Arizona has passed a bill in the senate and Gov. Ducey will sign it if it reaches his desk. "the Good Samaritan bill" as it is called would allow bystanders who have a "good faith belief" that the person or pet was in danger to take needed steps to rescue them with no fear of reprisal.

Roy I love your idea to put your cell phone etc in the back seat to remind you. It is one more step to keep animals and children safe.

Dear Roy,

Very good advice. Have had to jump in some water to cool off, while bailing hay once.
