Keep Kids Safe

Instead of a play date at the park, bring the kids indoors for a game of hide and seek or story time.
Never leave children alone inside an enclosed vehicle, where temperatures can exceed more than 100 degrees in a matter of minutes, according to the NOAA. In May, seven children died from hot cars over a 16-day period, USA Today reported. An estimated 38 die each year, according to the advocacy group KidsandCars.org.
