Watch Now

City of Miami Fire Chief Zahralban, speaks about the danger of leaving children unattended. The life and death situation of leaving a child alone in a car, even for a moment. A must watch!

I'In 2023, 27 children have died this year as of October from heat stroke, after being "forgotten" in the back seat of the family car. Since 1998, 967 young children have died brutally from extreme heat leading to heat stroke.  This is not the society we want to be. This year, Florida alone, seven children died. This is an outrage, and must spread the word to "Look before we lock". It takes only a second to save a life.  Please!

On June 8, 2017  Mayor Tomas Regalado awarded Kelly Ann with an official proclamation signed by the Mayor and all the City Commissioners. It is official: June 8 is "Kelly Ann Cosentino and The Baby Heat Stroke Institute Day in the City of Miami." Thank you Mayor For bringing Awarness to this important  Child-Safety Cause.

Would you leave your child Inside a Sauna?

No one would put a baby inside of a sauna, would they? Did you know that according to research done by General Motors, a car can heat up 50 degrees hotter than the outside temperature? If the outside temperature is 80 degrees, that means the "left behind child" is sitting in 130 degree temperatures- or worse. That is how children die.  Experiment: I went inside a sauna to see how hot 150 degrees felt. After three minutes, I was exhausted and dizzy.

What should you know?

Understanding the facts is a big step. Hi, my name is Kelly Ann and I would like to share with you information that may save a childs' life.

What happens if I see a baby alone in a car?

In the state of Florida, there is a "Good Samaratin Law" which means that if you act "reasonably" you may take action to save that baby. This is good news. But, you must first call the police. However, while the police are on the way, the baby may not have much time. Especially with the windows closed, and a hot day, You might have to break a window. Try to get help- call out. But, keep watch on the child. I asked a policeman how to break a window on a car. He said never try to do it with your hand, or your foot. You will get hurt. But, perhaps a   rock, or something heavy. He also said not to break the window over the child's head, but away from the child.  Maybe the front side windows. Let's keep a watch for children in cars.

On Tuesday, September 16, 2023, the outside air temperature was over 90 degrees in Miami.  In a car, the temperatures could easily rise to greater than 130 degrees! A child will die from heat stroke when the child's body temperature reaches 107 degrees. The body temperature is not the same as the car temperature. Heat Stroke can occur even when the outside air temperature is in the 60's and 70's. Remember: Never leave kids in cars unattended No matter the air temperature!

It's HOT!
