Children and Heat. Safety First.

There are several things you can do to protect yourself and your children from sun damage:

  • Wear sun-protective clothing and cover as much skin as possible
  • Slop and Go:  Use SPF 30 or higher sunscreen and reapply every 2 hours
  • Be a mad-hatter:  Always wear a hat
  • Cool Shades:  Wear CSA approved sunglasses and play in the shade
  • Avoid direct sun exposure between 11am and 4pm when the sun is strongest

Car Safety:

Summer heat and cars present extreme risks to children.  It doesn’t take long for heat and stroke to set in.

  • Never leave a child in a car, even with the windows down
  • If you need to run an errand, take your child with you
  • Look before you leave:  search your vehicle, front and back, before you leave
  • When you change your routine, or someone else drives your children, check in to make sure everyone has arrived at their destination

What can you do if you see a child in a hot car?

  • Call 911:  Don’t delay, call right away
  • If the car is unlocked, open the doors and shade the child or remove the child safely from the car
  • Provide information, location and license plate information
  • Wait for police to arrive

If you have any questions, call the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society – 705 743-9751 or 1 800 661-2843
