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.
