Parquea, Mira, Cierra!



Sample message:

¡Con la proximidad de el final del año escolar, nos gustaría recordarles a todos los padres y cuidadores que miren antes de cerrar con llave sus vehículos!

El siguiente consejo puede ayudar a prevenir el calor extremo (hipertermia) en los niños:

Siempre mira en los asientos delanteros y traseros del vehículo antes de cerrar la puerta y alejarte. Coloca un juguete adelante como recordatorio.
