URGENT Child Safety Message!

By EMS Captain Kevin Horahan
July 9, 2013

This past weekend, two children from our area - one in Baltimore and another in Northern Virginia - died from heat stroke. Tragically, both children were left in cars for several hours.

Safe Kids Worldwide offers the following:

Reduce the number of deaths from heatstroke by remembering to ACT.

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

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

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

Please share the "ACT" concept with family members and child care providers.

Other valuable resources are avilable from NHTSA -

and San Francisco State University -

PLEASE be safe!
