National Heat Awareness Day

(WIAT) — May 22 is National Heat Awareness Day.

kidsandcars.org and other national safety groups have joined forces for a 24-hour social media campaign to prevent child heatstroke deaths.

They’re posting facts and prevention tips on how to keep children safe.

Every year, 37 children die from being left in a hot car. kidsandcars.org is calling on the public to be prepared to save a life. If you see a child alone in a car, call 911.

If you are a parent, grandparent or caregiver, there are things you can do to ensure you never forget you have a child in the back of your car. This includes leaving a wallet, purse or phone next to the car seat, or a visual reminder, like a stuffed animal in the front seat. Finally, always look in the back before you lock up.
