    Always look before you lock

    • Always check the back seats of your vehicle before you lock it and walk away.
    • Keep stuffed animal or other memento in your child's car seat when it's empty, and move it to the front seat as a visual reminder when your child is in the back seat.
    • If someone else is driving your child, or your daily routine has been altered, always check to make sure your child has arrived safely.

    Keep in Mind Child's Sensitivity to Heat

    • In 10 minutes, a car's temperature can rise over 20 degrees.
    • Even at an outside temperature of 60 degrees, the temperature inside your car can reach 110 degrees.
    • A child dies when his/her body temperature reaches 107 degrees.
