(Campaign on dangers of Heat Stroke)….It kicks off Friday. Local agencies are participating in the kick-off event.
The campaign is to remind parents and caregivers of the danger in leaving children unattended in hot cars this summer. Children are at a higher risk than adults of dying from heatstroke in a hot vehicle, especially when they are too young to communicate. The event will be held at El Centro Fire Department, Station 3 at 1910 North Waterman Avenue. Participating will be El Centro Fire Department Battalion Chief Cedric Cesena, California Highway Patrol Public Information Officer German Lazarin, and Christopher Herring, Manager of the Emergency Medical Services Agency of the Imperial County Public Health Department.
