The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration teamed up with Safe Kids Worldwide to promote National Heat Stroke Day.

The groups concentrated their efforts on spreading awareness about dangers of leaving a child in a hot car, and took their campaign to social media, tweeting and posting to facebook throughout the day.

In Lexington, firefighters reminded people that despite the recent cooler weather, leaving a child in a car is still dangerous and should never be an option. The NHTSA says if you see a child alone in a hot vehicle, call 911 immediately.
