National Heatstroke Prevention Day
July 31, 2013

National Heatstroke Prevention Day


The Office of Emergency Medical Services at NHTSA asks for your help in getting the word out to your members about the danger of heatstroke when children are left in cars. Please help us raise public awareness about the dangers of kids in cars.


July 31 is National Heatstroke Prevention Day. Join us for a day of social media conversation. On this day, we ask that you and your members tweet and post on Facebook every hour on the hour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. @NHTSAgov will be using the hashtag #heatstroke on all its social media posts and asks you to do the same. You and your members can follow NHTSA on twitter at @NHTSAgov or like us on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/NHTSA.


No child should die of heatstroke from being left alone in a hot car! So, please join us on July 31st to help stop this 100-percent preventable tragedy.
