In Honor of National Heat Stroke Prevention Day; Pop-A-Lock – North America’s Largest Locksmith Network – Aims to Prevent Child Heatstroke Fatalities this Summer with PAL Saves Kids Program

(LAFAYETTE, LA) – July 28, 2015 – As temperatures continue to rise this summer, parents and caregivers must take extra precautions to ensure children are not left in cars PAL-Saves-Kidsnor have access to unlocked cars. In honor of National Heat Stroke Prevention Day scheduled for Friday, July 31, 2015 and the warmer summer season, Pop-A-Lock, North America’s largest locksmith and security network, educates parents and caregivers about the dangers of unknowingly leaving a child in a vehicle this summer and ultimately hopes to prevent another child heatstroke fatality through their nationwide PAL Saves Kids program.

The PAL Saves Kids program focuses on the dangers of leaving children unattended in or around vehicles. This first-of-its kind program will interact with customers; distribute educational materials to organizations supporting parents, caregivers, and children, and through proactive social media. Aimed to support local police and firefighters, the PAL Saves Kids program educates individuals to first call 9-1-1 and then call 1-800-Pop-A-Lock.  The Pop-A-Lock technician nearest to the scene will leave all other priorities aside to arrive as soon as possible to unlock the automobile. This FREE community service program was originally launched in 1991 and since then has saved over 350,000 children.

To prevent child vehicular heat stroke from occurring, the PAL Saves Kids program includes a call-to-action: “PAL Saves 1-2-3.” The “1-2-3” reminds caregivers to “look before you lock” by: 1-stopping; 2-looking; and then 3-locking.

The ‘PAL Saves Kids’ mascot, PAL Super Dog, is a reminder to parents and caregivers to always look in the backseat before locking the vehicle.  Specific recommendations to prevent leaving children in automobiles include:

  • Put something you’ll need like your cell phone, handbag, employee ID or briefcase, etc., on the floorboard in the back seat to help you get in the habit of always checking the back seat when you park your vehicle
  • Keep a large stuffed animal in the child’s car seat when it’s not occupied. When the child is placed in the seat, put the stuffed animal in the front passenger seat. It’s a visual reminder that anytime the stuffed animal is up front you know the child is in the back seat in a child safety seat.
  • Keep vehicles locked at all times; even in the garage or driveway and keep car keys and remote openers out of reach of children.

“We launched this program in 1991 to educate caregivers about the severe dangers of leaving children in unattended vehicles or mistakenly locking a child in an automobile,” said Don Marks, CEO of Pop-A-Lock.  “By using our expertise in the security industry, we are able to quickly and efficiently remove children from harm.  This program provides our franchise with the opportunity to thank the communities that have supported our business for so many years.”
