You have heard repeated announcements on radio and TV about the dangers of leaving children and pets in cars that heat up during the summer weather. In fact, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration estimates a child dies from heatstroke about once every ten days as a result of being left alone in a car that becomes superheated in summer weather. Jackson and Teton County Law Enforcement today are joining the observance of National Heatstroke Prevention Day. Additionally, the National Highway Transportation Administration urges community members who see a child or a pet alone in a hot vehicle to immediately call authorities. A child in distress due to heat should be removed from the vehicle as quickly as possible and rapidly cooled.
