      Asheville Fire Department Teams with Asheville Outlets to Bring Awareness to Child Vehicular Heatstroke

      The Asheville Fire Department is setting up a hot car display this Saturday, August 15th from 9:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. at Asheville Outlets (ShopAshevilleOutlets.com) to bring awareness to the risk of child vehicular heatstroke, and to educate parents + caregivers of steps they can take every time they drive. As summer temperatures rise, the concern around child vehicular heatstroke rises as well. Children dying from heatstroke in cars have increased in recent years and these tragedies are completely preventable. AFD is joining forces with Safe Kids Worldwide, Safe Kids NC, the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to support the U.S. Mayors’ initiative to End Child Vehicular Heatstroke.

      “It doesn’t need to be an extremely hot day for heat stroke to happen,” says Fire Chief Scott Burnette. “A child’s body temperature increases 3-5 times faster than that of an adult. We need to bring this awareness to our community to help prevent such a tragedy from occurring.” In the majority of cases, children were unknowingly forgotten following changes within their families’ routines or schedules. To learn more about simple steps parents + caregivers can take to prevent child vehicular heatstroke, visit NHTSA’s website at NTSA.gov/child-safety/help-prevent-hot-car-deaths.
