Look Before You Lock!
Did you know that every year dozens of children die as a
result of being left in unattended vehicles? By following a few simple safety
tips, you can prevent this tragic occurrence from happening to your loved ones.
Never leave children alone in or around cars;
not even for a minute.
Put something you’ll need like your cell phone,
handbag, employee ID or brief case etc., on the floorboard in the back seat.
This will remind you to check the backseat prior to exiting the vehicle.
Get in the habit of always opening the back door
of your vehicle every time you reach your destination to make sure no child has
been left behind. This will soon become a habit.
Keep are large stuffed animal in the child’s car
seat when it’s not occupied. When the child is placed in the seat, put the
stuffed animal in the front passenger seat. It’s a visual reminder that anytime
the stuffed animal is up front you know the child is in the back seat.
Keep vehicles locked at all times; even in the
garage or driveway and always set your parking brake. Children should be taught
to NEVER play in or around vehicles.
Keys and/or remote openers should never be left
within reach of children.
Make sure all passengers have left the vehicle
after it is parked.
When a child is missing, check vehicles and car
Educate your children and demonstrate how to use
an emergency trunk release in the event of an emergency.
Keep rear fold-down seats locked when not in
use. This will prevent kids from playing in the trunk.
Most importantly… If you see a child alone in a vehicle, get
involved. If they are hot or seem sick, get them out as quickly as possible.
Call 911 and report the emergency to your local authorities. Make sure to have accurate
location along with vehicle make, model, color and tag number.
