The Woodsboro Volunteer Fire/Rescue Company supports the "Never Leave Your Child Alone" campaign, and is helping spread the word!
A report has been conducted by Jan Null, which reveals a trend that children are being left behind in vehicles, and not surviving due to the excessive heat that vehicles trap inside:
"There have been at least twenty-two deaths of children in hot vehicles in 2011. In 2010 there were at least forty-nine deaths of children due to hyperthermia (heat stroke) from being in hot vehicles. In the previous year (2009) there were a total of at least 33 such fatalities in the United States due to hyperthermia after they were left in hot cars, trucks, vans and SUV's. Since 1998 there have been at least a total of 516 of these needless tragedies. This study shows that these incidents can occur on days with relatively mild (i.e., ~ 70 degrees F) temperatures and that vehicles can reach life-threatening temperatures very rapidly.
