Summer safety awareness

Today at Turner Field, representatives from GM are getting together with child-safety organizations to put the spotlight on summer safety for kids. Did you know that Georgia is #1 in child deaths from heat exposure? We've had ten children die in nine years from being left in a hot car. And that's inexcusable. So this summer, take the extra minute and a half to unbuckle your kids and bring them in the store with you. I don't care if you're just running in for a gallon of milk. What if there's a line and the register runs out of tape and you've got a trainee cashier and someone needs a price check? Two minutes turns into five turns into ten real quick. Let's have a summer where all our kids (and pets) stay safe and cool away from a hot car.
