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.
