[ARCHIVED] National Heatstroke Prevention Day - July 31,2013 - Social Media Event

July 31 Is National Heatstroke Prevention Day.
Your Quick Action Can Save a Young Life.
Problem: A child dies from heatstroke about once every 10 days from being left alone
in a hot vehicle. In fact, heatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash vehicle
fatality for kids 14 and younger. Children climb into unlocked cars to play, or are left alone in
the car. These are tragedies that are 100 percent preventable. Action: NHTSA is asking you to help us raise awareness about the dangers of kids and cars through a concerted daylong
social media conversation. NHTSA is reaching out to our State and safety partners to tweet and post on Facebook every hour on the hour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. @NHTSA.gov will be using the hash tag #heatstroke on all its social media posts and asks you to do the same. As we approach rising summer temperatures, the dangers for kids left in hot vehicles increases exponentially.
