Hyperthermia Demonstration

The Inland Empire Safe Kids Coalition in cooperation with the Rialto Fire Department, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and many other community agencies, invites you to come out for a demonstration of one of the ways children can suffer from heat stroke injuries. This demonstration will be held on August 9, 2012, beginning at 11 am, at Henry Elementary School in Rialto (470 E. Etiwanda Ave). This demonstration will include practical ways parents and caregivers can avoid these kinds of serious injuries as well as free information to anyone interested.

As part of our demonstration we will show a parent making the grave decision to leave her “baby” inside of the car for “just a minute.” After several passers-by choose not to get involved, one person will take the recommended action and call 911. The fire department will arrive in time to rescue the “baby” in an attempt to save this child’s life. This will be a visual demonstration and a realistic enactment of how one decision can lead to a drastic outcome.

For more information contact Michelle Parker, Loma Linda Children’s Hospital, 909-558-4000 ext 83303.
