The Story

​Scott Headley is a grandfather of five that lives in Lakeland, Florida.  One day​, he saw yet another news story about a child dying in a hot car. After seeing a record 53 children died in 2018 and 46 have already died this year, Headley decided to fight back.. 

​I can't imagine perishing that way​. And I can't imagine losing my child that way. Hopefully this will remind you, you have precious cargo on board.


Even if it saves one life, it will have been worth it.

​He designed the signature rubber bracelet.  It's message is simple:


Stop​, Look & Listen.


​The idea is gaining traction, too.  Sheriff Grady Judd was the first to jump on board.

The Problem:

🌡 Heatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash, vehicle-related deaths in children under 15.

🌡Heatstroke can happen when the body is not able to cool itself quickly enough.

🌡A child's body heats up three to five times faster than an adult does.

🌡When left in a hot car, a child's major organs begin to shut down when his temperature reaches 104 degrees Fahrenheit (F).

🌡A child can die when his temperature reaches 107 degrees F.

🌡Cars heat up quickly! In just 10 minutes, a car can heat up 20 degrees F.

🌡Cracking a window and/or air conditioning does little to keep it cool once the car is turned off.

🌡Heatstroke can happen when the outside temperature is as low as 57 degrees F.

🌡Because of climate change, we can expect more days to be hotter. Also, hotter days can happen throughout the year.

The Solution:

Child Check Bracelet In Use

​Simply keep the bracelet with your car seat.  When you place the child in the seat, put the bracelet on your wrist.


When you exit the vehicle, the bracelet's bright appearance should remind you to stop, look and listen, bringing awareness that you still have a child in the back seat.

1

​Get Involved By Getting the bracelet.
