“Don’t Leave Me Behind” Vehicular Heatstroke Awareness Campaign

PHOENIX— This year, the “Don’t Leave Me Behind” vehicular heatstroke awareness campaign is kicking off with new partners to help spread this important safety message. Working together with the Arizona Humane Society, Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Penguin Air & Plumbing, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office is challenging everyone to keep the number of incidents of children and pets left in hot cars this summer to zero.

The media is invited to the campaign kick-off at Tempe Marketplace to learn more about this summer long campaign that is dedicated to warning drivers about the dangers of leaving young children and pets in unattended vehicles.

Also, as part of the 2018 partnership campaign, an updated SafeKidsAZ webpage can be found at www.safekidsaz.org/vehicular-heatstroke. The website is filled with information, tips and videos to help people understand the dangers of hot cars and how the tragic loss of life in these scenarios is 100% preventable. Leaving a child or pet in a vehicle is not only potentially fatal, in some circumstances it is a criminal offense.

Our community and media partners are encouraged to take part and help achieve the goal of zero incidents of children and pets left in hot cars this summer by using the hashtag #DontLeaveMeBehind and following the partners on social media for more information and safety tips throughout the campaign.
