  • Did you know that heatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash, vehicle-related deaths in children under 15? If you see a child alone in a car, call 911 and stay with the child until help arrives. If the child is not responsive, immediately get the child out of the car.

  • Here are a few tips to make sure your child is safe this summer:
    • Check the back seat before you leave the vehicle 
    • Put your phone, purse, lunch, etc. in the backseat so you are sure to look before you lock your car
    • Do not let children play in or near vehicles - they may accidentally lock themselves in
    • If someone else is dropping your child off at daycare or camp, have them call you at drop off so you know they made it safely

  • During the summer, a car can quickly heat to over 100 degrees. Parking in the shade or cracking a window is not enough to keep your child safe from the heat. Never leave a child alone in a vehicle and always #LookBeforeYouLock!
  • You may not think it could happen to you, but a child can easily be left behind in a car when the parents are distracted, rushing, or changing routines. During the summer, temperatures in a parked car can be deadly. Make sure this mistake does not happen to you, always #LookBeforeYouLock!
  • Did you know that in Florida, it is a criminal offense to leave a child unattended in a vehicle? Unfortunately, during the summer heat, the loss for a parent can be even greater than any ticket or arrest. Protect your children and never leave them in a car alone! #LookBeforeYouLock

  • Children are not the only ones who are at risk of the dangers from a hot car. Vulnerable adults who are left in a car are just as at risk of heatstroke as a child. Never leave a vulnerable adult unattended in a vehicle and always #LookBeforeYouLock!
