April 15, 2019 - Following the deadliest year in history for child hot car deaths, KidsAndCars.org is pushing for technology and education to help end these preventable tragedies. National Heatstroke Prevention Day is a day dedicated to bringing awareness to the predictable and preventable tragedies of children and animals dying in hot cars.
"No one thinks a hot car tragedy can happen to them or their family. That is why these deaths and injuries continue to happen and why technology is critical in helping to prevent these unthinkable and heartbreaking incidents," stated Janette Fennell, founder and president of KidsAndCars.org, the leading national nonprofit child safety organization working solely to prevent injuries and deaths of children in and around motor vehicles.
KidsAndCars.org and their safety partners will post
throughout the day about how child vehicular heatstroke can be prevented. They are calling on the public and media outlets to join in to support this national effort.
