Safe Kids Worldwide has designated Friday, July 31, 2015 Heatstroke Prevention Day. Heat exhaustion is a condition whose symptoms may include heavy sweating and a rapid pulse, a result of your body overheating and is one of three heat-related syndromes, with heat cramps being the mildest and heatstroke being the most severe. Causes of heat exhaustion include exposure to high temperatures, particularly when combined with high humidity, and strenuous physical activity. Heat exhaustion can lead to heatstroke, a life-threatening condition. Remember to check on the elderly as they are more susceptible to heat exhaustion and heat stroke as the temperatures may compound existing health issues.  If air conditioning is not available, have them spend time in an air conditioned place such as the mall or the library.  Fortunately, heat exhaustion is preventable.  Visit these and other websites for more information.
Heatstroke Risk Factors and Prevention
Symptoms of Heat-Related Illnesses


A child dies from heatstroke approximately once every 9 days from being left alone in a hot vehicle.  In fact, heatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash vehicle fatalities for children aged 14 and younger and so far, 10 children have died in 2015 as a result of heatstroke as a result of being left in hot vehicles.  These tragedies can be prevented by heightening awareness of this problem, helping to reduce the number of deaths from automobile-related heatstroke by remembering to A.C.T.

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. 
   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 immediately.  Emergency personnel want you to call.  They are trained to respond to these situations and your call could save a life!

Safety Tips from
Prevent Child Heatstroke in Cars



On a sunny day with temperatures at or above 70 degrees, most people know that the temperature inside their car can soar to intolerable levels for anyone, including your dog.  Even in a shaded outdoor area, the heat can quickly affect your dog and cause serious complications, including death.  Not only to pet owners need to pay particular attention to the possibility of overheated pets.  Consideration must also be given to the heat of the asphalt or concrete pavement to prevent severe burns to the pet's paws.  Visit these and other websites for more information.
