For Pediatricians and Hospitals

Be a Voice for Vehicular Heatstroke Awareness & Prevention

Pediatricians and healthcare providers are parents’ most trusted source of parenting and health information. Join us in the effort to educate parents about the risk of vehicular heat stroke and how to prevent it!

As a healthcare provider, here's what you can do:

Talk to parents about vehicular heatstroke and the risk of unknowingly leaving their child in the car

Educate parents about putting a bag, phone, or another item of frequent use in the back seat of the car as a reminder to always open the back door

Display our flyer on the wall in your office and give our brochure to new parents at well checks
