Georgia launched a campaign to promote awareness of the danger vehicles can present to children. Here’s a couple of surprising facts:
–Heat cannot escape a vehicle: at 70 degrees outside, it can hit 105 degrees in the car in 20 minutes, and 117 in 60 minutes!
–Children’s body temperature rises five times faster than an adult. A 104 degree body temperature is enough to cause death.
Pass this on to friends and family to remind them to Look Again.
(Foundations only does field trips off site occasionally–we prefer on-site events–but when we do, we follow the rigorous guidelines set for double checking the bus by teachers and an administrator to make sure everyone is off safely.)
