Spartanburg SC USA
Our mission statement:
To educate the public about
the dangers of heat to small children to prevent tragic accidents resulting
in injury or death of children, and to warn about the almost unknown hazard
of parked cars to children.
Many children die every year, locked in or left in parked
Many more are rescued just in time before they are injured
Parents don't realize that a parked car is an imminent threat
to a small child because of the immense heat built-up inside - in a very
short time span !
A small child can die in less than 30 minutes if left in
a hot car !
Overheating occurs very rapidly and is unfortunately almost
untreatable once the damage has reached the brain and other organs
The only way to avoid fatalities is to always lock your car
and never leave children unattended even when you plan to leave just for
a short while !
And if small children are missing around your house - check
your cars first !
We hope that with more information and better education
senseless deaths like the one our son died can be avoided. He died because
we did not find him in time and nobody else knew where he had gone .. and
noone suspected a parked car in the neighborhood as a danger to his life
If we only had known then what we know know our son
most likely would be still alive !
We have a Public Service Announcement which was produced
with the help of
Channel 49 SC ETV in Spartanburg SC
and the Media Group of the Boiling Springs SC High
School Class of 97.
We would like to thank everybody for their help and
