The summer months can be incredibly dangerous for children in cars. Every week in the United States a child under the age of two dies from being left alone in a car. Fatality rates of hyperthermia among children being left alone in a motor vehicle is significantly greater than previous years for the same  time period over the summer.

These deaths can be prevented, and in many cases, a simple communication plan between parents and child care providers could save a child's life. In an arrival confirmation plan, parents notify providers when their children will be late or absent and providers contact parents if a child does not arrive as expected. This kind of basic plan creates a safety net to help make sure that no child lets left in a car.

Encourage the parents and providers in your life to do the same!
