Don't Miss Thursday's Heat Safety Chat on Twitter #KSHEAT
The most deadly weather event each year is not tornadoes, hurricanes, floods or storms-- it's extreme heat. Heat kills 1,500 people on average each year in America.
Parents forgetting their babies in the backseat of a hot car can be of of the biggest safety threats to children. We want to remind parents to "Look before they lock." It only takes 10 minutes for a car to heat up 20 degrees warmer and become deadly.
Tomorrow, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment will host a live twitter chat from 11 a.m. to noon to bring awareness to heat safety preparedness. You can participate by following @KDHE and using the hastag #KSHeat.
