KidsAndCars.org, along with
other child-safety advocacy groups and the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA), will mark Heat Stroke Prevention Day on July 31 with
increased efforts to raise awareness and educate parents and caregivers about
ways to prevent children from being unknowingly left alone in a hot vehicle.
Heat stroke is the leading cause of non-crash vehicle fatalities for children
14 and younger, but can be prevented.
