Free Child Safety Reminder Tags
While many people are aware of the high temperatures reached during a Louisiana summer and the serious risk that comes with leaving a child in a vehicle in these conditions, it only takes one mistake for devastating consequences.
- The temperature in a car can rise 20 degrees in only 10 minutes.
- A child’s temperature heats up to five times faster than an adult’s.
- The risk of dying from a heatstroke in a vehicle is increased when a child i s too young to communicate.
In an effort to prevent hot car-related injuries and deaths, Woman’s Hospital is offering free backseat reminder tags to families as part of our child safety public service campaign.
While the hang tags are not intended to replace parents’ alertness, they serve as an extra reminder for parents to check for their child in the backseat.
Hang tags may be downloaded and printed
