Cool Tips for Parents: Keep Kids Safe During Hot Weather

32 Comments

With temperatures soaring into the upper 90’s here in Portland, Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) would like to offer a few simple tips for parents to help keep kids safe and cool during this unusually warm weather.

  • Heat exhaustion and heat stroke can occur rapidly in enclosed vehicles. Never leave your child unattended in a car. Children’s thermoregulatory systems warm three to five times faster than an adult’s.
  • Always check to make sure all children leave the vehicle when you reach your destination. Don’t overlook sleeping infants.  (TIP: Keep your child’s toy or diaper bag in the front passenger seat to help remind you the child is on board).
  • On a 93-degree day, the inside of a car can exceed 125° degrees Fahrenheit in as little as 20 minutes. The temperature inside of a car is hotter than outside temperatures, and can climb rapidly.
  • Heat stroke can occur in a matter of minutes for young children and infants.  Keep children sufficiently hydrated and cool during the day.
  • Cracking the windows enough to let in air is not an effective way to avoid the heat risks involved with leaving a child alone in a car on a hot day.
  • Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you know or think that your child has been exposed to high temperatures by having been left in or accidentally trapped in a car.
  • If your child gets locked inside a car, dial 9-1-1 or your local emergency number immediately.
  • An open or screened window in homes can be a danger to children.  Falls from upper story windows related to the heat have been responsible for fatal child injuries in our state.  Make sure to keep furniture away from windows, open windows from the top down if possible, and install child-safety window guards all help to prevent injury.

Hi I am Melissa, a fine art wedding photographer that is based in Barrowby, Grantham. My style is often described as timeless or fine art as it is inspired by my love of film images. I feel most inspired by Fuji400h and Portra 400 film, timeless fine art imagery and storytelling. I adore watching a wedding day unfold and also love documenting these images creating a mixture of artistically crafted images with a journalistic twist. When it comes to portraits, guide my couples through natural and organic poses that create portraits that feel natural and effortless. I am located near Grantham, Lincolnshire and the Vale of Belvoir, Leicestershire.
