We know it’s England, but we do get little heat waves from May – Sept!

Take care and make sure that you and your little ones stay safe.


Why is it so risky? Hyperthermia (heatstroke) can occur.

 Car temperatures can rise 10 to 15 degrees Celsius every 15 minutes 🔥🔥🔥 Opening windows does not significantly slow down the rate down

 A child’s body temperature rises 3 to 5 times faster than an adult’s due to lower water reserves.

 Hyperthermia can occur in minutes, and fatalities within 2 hours.

 Hyperthermia can occur on days as cool as just 22 degrees Celsius, when the inside of a car can quickly reach 47 degrees Celsius.

Here is a link to keeping babies/children cooler –

For adults 👥 :

 Stay in the shade between 11am and 3pm.

 Close any windows or curtains that are facing the sun.

 Eat salad and fruit.
