(OPEN):
IT'S NEVER SAFE TO LEAVE A CHILD ALONE IN A CAR.  AND, JULY IS TYPICALLY THE HOTTEST MONTH OF THE YEAR--WHICH MAKES IT EVEN MORE IMPORTANT FOR PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS TO PROTECT CHILDREN AGAINST HEATSTROKE IN VEHICLES.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO STACY DEBROFF--THE FOUNDER OF "MOM CENTRAL"...

(DEBROFF):
"
IN MERE MINUTES, THE INSIDE OF A PARKED CAR CAN HEAT UP TO LIFE-THREATENING TEMPERATURES--EVEN WITH THE WINDOWS OPEN.  AND, MAKING IT MORE DANGEROUS, A CHILD'S BODY CAN HEAT UP THREE- TO FIVE-TIMES FASTER THAN THAT OF AN ADULT.  EACH YEAR, AN AVERAGE OF 37 YOUNG LIVES ARE LOST, FROM BEING LEFT UNATTENDED IN AN AUTOMOBILE--WITH MOST VICTIMS UNDER TWO YEARS OLD.  BUT, THESE DEATHS CAN BE PREVENTED.  ESPECIALLY DURING THIS HOT SEASON, REMEMBER:  NEVER, EVER LEAVE KIDS ALONE IN A CAR--EVEN FOR A SECOND.  SUMMER SHOULD BE A TIME FOR FAMILIES TO RELAX AND ENJOY; DON'T LET IT TURN INTO A TRAGEDY."
