Preventing child abuse and child fatalities is a community effort. A child’s death is a tragic event. Each year in Nevada, over 100 children die from preventable causes of death.
Ensure Medical Safety
If your child relies on electrically operated medical equipment and you need help to ensure an uninterrupted power supply, please contact NV Energy for help.
Kids and Hot Cars
It is never a good idea to leave a child alone in a car any time of the year, but during summer months it is extremely dangerous. A child left alone in a vehicle, even for a short period of time, is in danger of abduction, injury, dehydration and even death. Very young children (age 4 and under) are particularly vulnerable to hyperthermia. Remember in Nevada, it is a misdemeanor to leave a child unattended in a vehicle (NRS 202.575).
