Face It Friday: Summer Car Safety

Face It® Friday: Summer Car Safety

This summer has been especially hot! Make sure you are keeping your little ones safe in the heat, especially in hot cars. One way to help remember your kiddo in the back of a car is to leave an item you’ll need at your next destination in the backseat, such as your cell phone, purse, or briefcase. For more tips on keeping your kids safe in hot cars, check out this article.


Kids aren’t built for heat: Children’s body temperatures rise 3-5 times faster than adults.

Seconds count: The temperature of a car can climb 20 degrees in 20 minutes.

It doesn’t have to be hot: Heatstroke can occur in the shade, with the windows down, and even at temperatures as low as 57 degrees.
