This cause of death for children and even for many pets is so incredibly tragic!

It's easy to be distracted! Running the groceries inside quickly while your child is still asleep in the car seat, only to answer a phone call or help another child...whatever the reason is, it's possible for ANYONE to be distracted! So I feel the need to constantly remind people that this time of year can be DEADLY!

Look before you lock the car doors, stay alert and present, while tending to your driving and care of your children and pets.

I'm reminding myself as well because I know it can happen to anyone!

Let's ALL be extra vigilant and stay on track with safety. And when you go to a grocery store look around the parking lot! See any small children or pets left in cars with no adults? Make a call, break a window...do what you have to do to save a life!

Here are some statistics on heatstroke deaths from situations just like I'm describing!
