Calaveras Public Health Services - Warm Weather Warning

San Andreas, Ca - Vehicle heat related deaths in California have already claimed two children in 2014. These deaths are preventable. Calaveras Public Health Services is issuing this reminder to all residents that provide transportation to children. It does not take a heat wave for the risk of heat illness and death to be present for those who are most vulnerable – children, severely disabled and frail seniors. Pets are also at risk of heat illness and death if left in a vehicle for even a short period of time...


A child’s body temperature rises 3 – 5 times faster than an adult’s body temperature.

Even with the windows of a vehicle rolled part way down, the inside temperature can
reach 125 degrees in just minutes. What contributes to children being left in a car
alone?

• Parents/caregivers rush into a store to do a quick errand leaving the child in the vehicle.
• Parents/caregivers forget a child is in the vehicle.
• Young children playing in an unlocked vehicle accidentally get locked in the trunk.

Children less than three years of age account for more than 80% of heat related child deaths in the U.S. each year. One of the major errors parents make is thinking it could never happen to them.

“Vehicle heat related deaths happen every year in California and they can be prevented,” stated Dr. Dean Kelaita, County Health Officer. “There are steps each of us can take to be sure no child in Calaveras County dies this year,” added Kelaita. The following tips can help save lives whether you have children or not:

Parents & Caregiver Reminders
• Never leave children alone in or around cars; not even for a minute.
• Put something you'll need when you leave the vehicle, like your cellphone, handbag, employee ID or briefcase, etc., in the backseat.
• Make it a habit to always open the backdoor of your vehicle every time you reach your destination to make sure no child has been left. This is the “Look Before You Lock” campaign.
• Keep a large stuffed animal in the child’s car seat when it is not occupied. When the child is in the seat, put the stuffed animal in the front passenger seat as a reminder that your child is in the back.
• Tell your child’s day care center or baby sitter that you will always call if you child
will not be there on a scheduled day.

Safety Tips for Everyone
• Keep vehicles locked at all times, even in the garage or driveway. Ask visitors to do the same.
• Never leave vehicle keys or remote openers within reach of children.
• If a child is missing, check all vehicles immediately.
• If you see a child left alone in a vehicle call 911. If they are hot or seem sick, get them out as quickly as possible and stay with them until help arrives.

For more information about ways to keep children safe in the heat, visit www.KidsAndCars.org or call the Child Passenger Safety and Car Seat Program, Calaveras Public Health Services at 209.754.6460.
