Car Saftety in Warm Weather

Studio 4
        As the weather warms up, it seems we always here those terrible stories of a child being left in a hot vehicle. Amy Wagner, County Extension Agent from Randall County has an easy way to remember to put safety first..


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

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

T – Take
Take action.  If you see a child alone in a car, call 911 right away.  Emergency personnel want you to call.  They are trained to respond to these situations.  One call could save a life.
