Child Safety - Injury and Child Fatality Prevention

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.

      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).
