Prevent Hot Car Deaths

  • Heatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash, vehicle-related death for children, and more than half of fatalities are the result of a child being unintentionally left in the vehicle by a caregiver.
  • Heatstroke deaths have occurred in all months of the year and in cooler states, like Montana, because the interior of a car can heat quickly – climbing up to 19 degrees in as little as 10-minutes!
  • Avoid heatstroke by never leaving a child alone in a car and use reminders such as placing your cell phone, purse or briefcase in the backseat with your child. Call 9-1-1 if you see a child alone in a car.
