Look Before You Lock, Never Leave a Child Alone in a Car

Babies and young children are much more sensitive to heat than adults. They have lower sweat rates and cannot adjust to heat the same way as adults. Their temperatures rise 3-5 times faster than adults.  A hot car quickly becomes an oven to their small bodies causing heat stress, severe dehydration, heat exhaustion, or heat stroke. Heat stroke puts your child at risk for organ failure, seizures, coma, and even death.

Keep in mind a child's sensitivity to heat
  • In 10 minutes, a car's temperature can rise more than 20 degrees.
  • Even with an outside temperature of 60 degrees, the temperature inside your car can reach 110 degrees.
  • A child may die when his or her body temperature reaches 107 degrees.
  • Opening the car windows slightly does not keep the temperature at a safe level.
