With the hot, hazy days of summer in full swing, the Halton Children’s Aid Society has some valuable tips for parents, caregivers and the general public about car safety.
The facts are simple.
The temperature inside a parked car can exceed 50oC within 10 to 20 minutes on a typical Canadian summer day
Opening the window(s) slightly DOES NOT reduce the temperature
Heatstroke occurs at 40.50C
Young children, especially infants, are three to five times more sensitive to heat than adults
Rising temperatures inside a car can cause a child to suffer from heat stress, dehydration, shock and, in extreme cases, even death
By purchasing a paper door for $2, Burlington and Milton Home Depot customers raised more than $43,000 in 36 days for the Children’s Aid Foundation of Halton's (CAFH) Bridging the Gap program.
CAFH will use all proceeds from Home Depot's Orange Door Project to provide accessible support for Halton youth between the ages of 16-24 who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
