Dallas Texas June 10, 2016 – Chances are everyone has accidentally locked themselves out of their vehicle at one time or another. Unfortunately, when a young child is in the locked vehicle things can escalate quickly making it a life threatening situation in mere minutes. Statistics state that 24% of non-crash related casualties involve children and are caused by leaving them inside a locked vehicle. Even pets can quickly succumb to the interior heat of a vehicle when locked inside. With the 2016 Summer season coming, Dallas FW Locksmith (www.dallasfwlocksmith.com) wishes to let consumers know how to help children and families experiencing a vehicle lock-out before the heat inside becomes dangerous.
Children in locked vehicles are especially susceptible to heat death because their body thermostats heat up quickly – as much as three to even five times faster than an adult. Child safety advocates share an acronym ‘A.C.T.’ (Avoid, Create, Take) to remember how to keep children safe. Firstly, parents and child caretakers should never leave children unattended around vehicles. Secondly, they should be consistent about locking all unattended vehicle doors and trunks. Parents and caregivers should also keep keys and remote entry fobs out of children’s reach and away from their eye level.
Although less common than in previous decades thanks to the lobbying of parents groups, child deaths because of being locked in cars is on the downturn. Car manufacturers and child safety programs educate parents and children about the dangers of forgetting about children inside of vehicles.
