The medal has been adopted by the Military Order of Foreign Wars and is offered as a purely civilian device to commemorate honorable military service. Its central motif is the famous "ruptured duck," adapted from the Honorable Service lapel pin used during the interim period between the First World

War and following the Second World War. The cross represents the military services: the Army, Navy (including the Coast Guard), the Marine Corps and the Air Force. The laurel wreath represents honor and achievement. The colors of the ribbon are suggested by the American Defense Service Medal and the National Defense Service Medal. The blue, white and red are the national colors, and the gold represents the golden opportunity of American youth to serve the National Colors.

They came to the new land to seek opportunity, raise good families, and worship as they pleased. In the course of our story, the Revolutionary War comes to their doorsteps, and they have to choose whether to take up arms to defend their new-found liberties. Our story ends with the decisive Battle of Kings Mountain, which turned the tide of the Revolution in the Patriots’ favor. But the larger story doesn’t end there. It’s the story of America, of hardy, determined people living through challenging times, striving and building, and arriving at today’s nation with those same values the early Patriots held dear. All of us associated with “Liberty Mountain” believe it’s a story that every American should know. We often get so caught-up in the present that we fail to remember the lessons of the past, to honor good people on whose backs we stand today. We’re blessed to be putting on our play in Kings

Mountain, a community whose name honors the Patriots, and whose love of that legacy brings great support to our production. The City Council, the Tourism Development Authority, the Cleveland County Commission, and scores of business large and small make our work possible with their contributions of funds, time, and enthusiasm. We hope we repay in part by telling a story that does justice to Kings Mountain and its history and spreading that story to an ever-widening audience. I’m happy to report that early ticket sales are brisk. We will have 17 performances this year – four each weekend and a special Fourth of July edition, ending on July 22. You can find everything you need – information on the play, phone numbers, and online ticket ordering – on our website: See you there!

Saturday is an important day our director Caleb Sigmon calls “company orientation.” It’s the first time Caleb and I gather with the entire cast and crew for this year’s production, and begin an intense two weeks of rehearsals for opening night on Friday, June 29. We have another outstanding cast this year. There are some veteran performers who have been with us in past years, some even since our premier in 2014. They provide a core of experience that is a real advantage when you have a short time to put together an exciting, action-packed and inspiring show. The veterans will be joined this year by a host of newcomers: some theatre professionals and many more who are college drama students. It’s a way for them to build an impressive resume as they continue their pursuit of a career in theatre. They bring a great work ethic and energy from their college experience. Our job will be to entertain, educate and inspire our audiences – to take them into a time more than 200 years ago when the Carolinas were being settled by immigrants, many of them from North-

By Loretta Cozart Conserving water is not only good for the environment, it also saves you money. Simply following the water conservation tips found at the City of Kings Mountain’s website ( can save you hundreds of dollars each year. Your family can work together to monitor water usage and the money saved can be used for something the whole family can enjoy. • If your shower can fill a one-gallon bucket in less than 20 seconds, then replace it with a water-efficient showerhead. • Turn off the faucet while washing your hands, brushing your teeth, shaving and rinsing dishes. • Keep your showers short or only shower every other day. • Install a low-flow showerhead and catch the water in a bucket while you wait for the water to warm

up-this water may be used later to water your plants. • Collect the water you use for rinsing produce and reuse it to water houseplants. • Time your shower to keep it under 5 minutes. You’ll save up to 1,000 gallons a month. • Install low-volume toilets • Put food coloring in your toilet tank. If it seeps into the toilet bowl, you have a leak. It’s easy to fix, and you can save more than 600 gallons a month • Plug the bathtub be-

fore turning the water on, then adjust the temperature as the tub fills up. • Before you lather up, install a low-flow showerhead. They’re inexpensive, easy to install, and can save your family more than 500 gallons a week. • Keep a bucket in the shower to catch water as it warms up or runs. Use this water to flush toilets, water plants, or even top off the laundry machine. • Don’t brush your teeth while in the shower; this wastes several gallons per See WATER, Page 7A

KMHM’ KMHM’ss‘A‘ACentury CenturyofofFashion’ Fashion’opened opensSaturday June 9 Cleveland County residents can take a step back in time when they visit the latest exhibit at the Kings Mountain Historical Museum (KMHM), located at 100 E. Mountain Street in Kings Mountain. The exhibit, titled “A Century of Fashion: 1880-1980,” will run Saturday, June 9, 2018 – Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018. Admission is free, and exhibit hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. “This is an exhibit we can all relate to, since after all, every day we all get dressed!” says Sarah Lynch, KMHM director and curator. The exhibit will focus on fashion across a tumultuous and exciting century and will explore the relationship between the changes in the world to the changes in clothing. It will highlight some of the peaks of Kings Mountain fashion and showcase some hidden gems in the KMHM collection. “The dresses, shirts, suits, shoes, accessories and photographs collectively and individually tell stories of the people and times they are from,” says Lynch. “This exhibit will give visitors a chance to delve deeper into the meanings behind fashion and will offer a look at Gussie Beatty and Enola Beatty inside the Beatty Millinery and Dressmaking Shop on Mountain Street in the clothing of the past and at Kings Mountain, circa 1900. Although not a major part of an outfit today, hats were essential to everyday the town’s history from a differwear though the middle of the twentieth century. KMHM’s collection and this exhibit will feature many hats. ent perspective.” One highlighted feature of the exhibit will be the fashions of the year 1974, when Kings Mountain celebrated the centennial of the town’s founding. “For an entire month the city was bustling with activities, which included many opportunities to dress in ‘period clothing,’” says Lynch. “In our collection are some of the outfits worn during the celebration, and they provide great insight into how the earthy tones, dress styles and fabric patterns of the 1970s found their way into the commemoration of 1874 American dress. It is an exciting celebration to revisit, and is sure to take many on a walk down memory lane.” In addition to vintage clothing and photos, the exhibit will also include a photo booth, hands-on activities and crafts. For those who might like to get an early peek at the exhibit, a sneak preview will be held on Friday, June 8, 2018, at 5:30 p.m. This evening will be a celebration of food and music (as well as fashion) from the 1960s. The program is free for KMHM members and costs $10 for non-members. “Fashion connoisseurs, history lovers and even those with very little fashion knowledge will find something they can relate to and enjoy,” says Lynch.

Pieces of Kings Mountain History Last Saturday, the Sons of the American Revolution and Daughters of the American LORETTA Revolution COZART commemorated the 238th anniversary of the Battle of the Battle Ramsour’s Mill at the FD Jack Kiser School in Lincolnton. The battle took place on June 20, 1780. The Battle of Kings Mountain Chapter, NCSSAR placed a wreath at the commemoration. President Steve Marlowe Rendered Honors. Past President, Doyle Campbell participated in the Color Guard and in the Recessional. Jim Wood, Vice President General of the South Atlantic District, NSSAR brought greetings. Former South Atlantic District VPG Mark Anthony Retired the Colors. SAR Chapters from NC, SC, TN, VA, and GA placed wreaths. Patricia Hance, Past

NCSDAR State Chaplain delivered both the Invocation and Benediction. Ms. Hance is a member of the Jacob Forney DAR Chapter that placed the marker at Ramsour’s Mill on June 20, 1930. All the men who fought in the Battle of Ramsour’s Mill were colonists, 1,800 in total. Only 400 were Whigs (Patriots). The remaining 1,400 were Tories (Loyalists) who supported the British Crown. The Patriots won the battle due to the element of surprise. It was a foggy day and the Tories weren’t aware of the advancing Whigs until it was too late. According to the Lincoln County Historical Association’s website, “As the morning fog lifted, the scene revealed many dead and wounded men scattered across the battlefield. An estimated seventy men had been killed and two hundred wounded, some so severely that they died within days. Casualties

were about equally divided between the two sides, although the Patriot loss in officers was quite high. “By midday, a large force of Patriot militia commanded by General Griffith Rutherford reached the battlefield. Work began at aiding the wounded and burying the dead. While the bodies of some men killed in the battle were returned to their homes for burial, the majority of the dead were placed in a deep trench on the west side of the hill. Unable to distinguish Loyalist from Patriots since the men wore no uniforms, the dead were respectfully buried together.” In the weeks that followed, retaliation against Loyalists occurred. Many lost their land, and some were thrown in jail. Loyalist James Karr lost his land and asked for help to reclaim it from Patriot General Griffith Rutherford with whom he had served in the 1776 war against

the Cherokee. Rutherford refused to help him, saying that Karr was not deserving of his help due to his past behavior. Retaliation was not unusual after battles and

many Loyalists and Patriots lost land and were imprisoned during those times. Many of the survivors of the Battle of Ramsour’s Mill went on to fight at the Battle of Kings Mountain less

than four months later. Loretta Cozart grew-up in Kings Mountain and is a member of the Col. Frederick Hambright DAR Chapter. lhcozart@cccom. com 704-241-2218.

From ball teams to marriage vows, “But the fruit humans struggle with remaining of the Spirit is faithful. Mature Christians must love, joy, peace, be different and can only stay patience, kindness, faithful through the power of the goodness, faithfulHoly Spirit. The Bible is full of acness, gentleness, DR. JONATHAN counts both of God’s faithfulness and self-control. and those who remained faithful to M. BUNDON Against such Worship Pastor God throughout dreadful circumthings there is no First Baptist Church stances. Take Job for example. law.” Galatians Job prospered and had everything 5:22-23 a person could want. Yet when Job As we come to the seventh part suffered much, he decided to stick of the fruit of the Spirit, faithfulness, with God. Job, a man who lost evlet us review the definition. “Faith erything, chose to say “Though he is complete trust or confidence in (God) slay me, yet I will hope in someone or something.” him.” (Job 13:15) What kind of When we think about the faith- faithfulness causes a person to say fulness we should grow in our own such a bold statement, and more so,

mean it? Job trusted God and put faith into action. The book of Hebrews records another definition of faith and recounts the faithful deeds of women and men. Hebrews 11:1 states “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” After this passage, there are a number of stories where people put their faith in action regardless of the potential consequences. But why? What would possess someone to act out such faith knowing that the cost could be great? The only way someone can act out such faithfulness is when she or he has Christ, the faithful one, living in them. You see, Jesus remained faithful to his call and us, even to the point of death. The triune God gives us the ability to grow and be faithful. But

God’s power and promise doesn’t stop there. God promised that even when we are not faithful, he remains faithful. What a blessed promise we have in God. In Lamentations 3:22-23 we are comforted by Jeremiah, “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” We must recognize and take hold of God’s faithfulness, and we must be persistent in taking hold of his promises. The faithful speak out while the masses remain silent. The faithful act in accordance with what God wants rather than what the world wants. The question I ask you is the same I must ask myself, “Are you and I more concerned with becoming like the world or becoming

like God?” If you and I want to be more like God than we must fully become dependent on God. We must be faithfully persistent in our walk with God. For instance, When you and I pray, are we persistently praying for others? Boldness is the key in faithful petitioning, and we must get in the habit of total dependence on God. As we do, we will be faithful in service to the Lord. We will be faithful around our family, friends, and coworkers. We will grow in our consistency of faithfulness to God. Ultimately, faithfulness ends in victory. Paul says in Romans 8:18, “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” This week, remember that God remains faithful to us and may we be bold in our faithfulness to God.

DAR Chapter spring meetings

Students from East Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte recently presented State House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) with an Advanced Placement Policy Leadership Award for removing a cost barrier to college credit for tens of thousands of students in North Carolina.

N.C. Speaker recognized for removing cost barrier to college credit Students from East Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte recently presented state House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) with an Advanced Placement Policy Leadership Award for removing a cost barrier to college credit for tens of thousands of students in North Carolina. Student participation and successful performance on Advanced Placement (AP) exams in North Carolina increased substantially since the Republican-led General Assembly began funding college credit testing fees through the North Carolina Advanced Placement Partnership (NCAPP) in 2014. “The mission of the partnership between the College Board and the state of North Carolina is to prepare, inspire, and connect post-secondary success and opportunity with a particular focus on minority students,” according to the website of the state-funded program. Prior to the NCAPP program, North Carolina

families paid out-of-pocket for college credit exam fees. The AP exam fee is currently $94 per subject, according to the College Board. The North Carolina General Assembly will spend more than $50 million to pay college credit exam fees for families by 2019. “I appreciate the recognition of our efforts to empower tens of thousands of students to succeed in higher learning by removing a cost barrier to college credit,” said House Speaker Tim Moore. According to the state Board of Education, North Carolina had a 22% increase of students taking college credit exams, a 29% increase in the total number of exams taken and a 19% increase in successful test-takers under the Advanced Placement Partnership program. Minority students’ participation and performance on AP exams in North Carolina public schools outpaced the nation under the

Republican education program, according to NCAPP data. Since 2014 North Carolina had “consistent growth annually in student enrollment across the state” and “growth in all three major categories of AP exam participation and performance,” according to NCAPP. Earning college credit through successful participation on AP exams can save students on future tuition at universities and community colleges, too. North Carolina also offers fixed-rate tuition and fees to students at public universities to provide consistency and predictability in the cost of college. The 2018 state budget provides additional funds for the Advanced Placement Partnership to encourage participation in all school districts, revising the annual net appropriation to the partnership to $2.2 million in FY 201819.

By Robin Masters Meyer This past Spring has been a time of remembering, celebrating and hard work for the Colonel Frederick Hambright Chapter, NSDAR. In March the chapter, along with the Tryon Resolves Chapter from Cherryville held a memorial and marker dedication service and luncheon at Central United Methodist Church. During the memorial service the chapter paid respect to three of their members who passed away recently: Priscilla Mauney, Janet Flemming and Honorary Chapter Regent Louise Roberts. Three DAR Insignia Grave Markers were also dedicated at this service for Mrs. Roberts, Ethel Hamrick McGinnis and Alma Jane Putnam Plonk. Members of each of these lady’s families were on hand to honor their loved ones. Mrs. Putnam, whose daughter Sandra Bumgardner is a member of the Colonel Frederick Hambright Chapter, was a member of the Tryon Resolves Chapter. It was a moving service that allowed both chapters to honor their members. A delicious lunch was served by the Methodist Men of Central United Methodist after which the chapter heard from their DAR Good Citizen Gracie Plonk. Gracie read her Good Citizen Essay and talked to the ladies about her future plans and her Senior Project which is a blessing box that is located at Central Methodist. She was joined by her parents, Carl and Margot Plonk. April found members of the chapter preparing for and attending the 118th NCSDAR State Conference in Durham. As part of District II, the chapter was involved with hosting duties for this year’s conference. The chapter partnered with the Rendezvous Mountain Chapter from North Wilkesboro to host the Regent’s Welcome Reception on Thursday night. It was a lovely event that was enjoyed by all who attended.

The Colonel Frederick Hambright ladies then spent the rest of the weekend helping as Hall Hostesses, assisting other chapters with decorations for their events and enjoying time together and with daughters from across the state and country. Members who attended were: Regent Renee Bost, Vice-Regent Libby Putnam, Registrar and Honorary Chapter Regent Betty Masters, Corresponding Secretary LeeAnn Hendricks and chapter member Robin Meyer. Mrs. Meyer also serves as the District II Director. Also present with the chapter was CAR member-at-large Cassie Hendricks. At the chapter’s May meeting the ladies learned of ways to preserve their family documents and photos from the chapter’s Librarian and GWU Archivist Natalie Bishop who recently completed her doctorate. The chapter also installed their newest member Allison Falls during the meeting which was hosted by Chapter Secretary Linda Carpenter. Mrs. Carpenter provided a delicious meal and the fellowship hall of Temple Baptist Church was decorated with a Patriotic theme to welcome the ladies. Plans were also made for summer happenings and for the Wreaths Across America project. The chapter is sponsoring Mountain Rest Cemetery for the annual Wreaths Across America day in December to honor our Veterans.

It is the goal of the project to have a wreath for every Veteran buried at our local cemetery so please consider purchasing a wreath or two to make this a reality. For more information on this worthy project or to discuss joining DAR you can contact the chapter through their website at The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to preserve the memory and spirit of those who contributed to securing American independence.

The County Retail Task Force initiated the litter contest to ask for participation from the youth in our schools. The success of this contest reflects the amount of importance the community places on litter collection and prevention, and we are excited to continue to improve the natural beauty of our county through various programs and initiatives.” DeShay Oliver, Public Information Officer with the Cleveland County Public Health Center, said, “We strategically chose to kick off this initiative by engaging elementary and intermedi-

ate school-aged children because we felt like they would be instrumental in talking with their parents and other caregivers about the importance of not littering. By having them participate in this contest, not only did we reach the students, but hopefully their families as well. Moreover, the future of our county is in their hands. If we can instill good habits in them while they are young, hopefully this will be carried with them into adulthood.” The billboards will serve as an additional means to get their anti-littering messages out to the larger community. “A common theme that was seen throughout almost all contest entries was the importance of protecting our planet and taking pride in our community. We hope the community will take heed in these messages portrayed by our young people,” said Oliver. The contest sponsors would like to extend a special thank you to our schools for helping to promote the contest, and to all of the students who took the time to design and submit entries.

Cheap Cell Phone Plans for Seldom Calling Seniors Dear Savvy Senior What are the cheapest cell phone plans available to seniors today? I’m 78-years-old and want it primarily for emergency purposes. Infrequent Caller Dear Infrequent, While unlimited high-speed data, video streaming and mobile hot spot are now standard for most cell phone plans today, there are still a number of low-cost wireless plans designed with seniors in mind. These plans offer limited talk time and text, which is ideal for seniors who want to stay connected without spending much money each month. Here are some super cheap plans to consider. Cheapest Plans Prepaid plans are the best deal for seniors who only want a cell phone for emergency purposes or occasional calls. The very cheapest prepaid plan available today is T-Mobile’s Pay As You Go plan, which includes any combination of 30 minutes or 30 text messages for only $3 per month.

After that, additional minutes and texts cost 10 cents each. Phone prices start at $75, but if you have a compatible device, you can use it rather than buying a new one. You will, however, need to pay for a $10 SIM Starter Kit fee, whether you bring your own phone or buy a new one. Visit or call 844-361-2792 for more information. Two other companies that offer lowcost prepaid deals are TracFone and AT&T. TracFone (, 800-8677183) has a 30 minute talk/text plan for $10 per month, or an even cheaper a 60 minute talk/text plan for $20 for three months, which averages out to only $6.66 per month. And AT&T (, 800-3310500) has two low-cost prepaid plans including the 25 cent per minute call plan, and a $2 daily plan that charges only when you place or receive a call or send a text that day. The fees are deducted from the prepaid balance on your account. But to use AT&T

Prepaid, you must prepay into your account either $10 per month, $25 for three months or $100 per year. Best Emergency Phone If you’re interested in a senior-friendly cell phone that provides topnotched emergency assistance, consider the Jitterbug Flip (GreatCall. com, 800-918-8543). This is a nifty flip phone that has big buttons, enhanced sound, a simplified menu, and a 5Star urgent response button that connects you to a trained agent that will know your locations, and will be able to assist you whether you need emergency services, directions, roadside assistance or a locksmith, or to contact family. GreatCall’s service runs on Verizon’s network. The Flip phone costs $100, with monthly service plans that start at $15 for 200 minutes. Or, you can get the 5Star service with 50 minutes of monthly talk time for $25. Free Phones If your income is low enough, an-

other option you should check into is the federal Lifeline program, which provides free or low-cost cell phones and plans through numerous wireless providers. To qualify, your annual household income must at or below 135 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines – which is $16,389 for one person, or $22,221 for two. Or, you must be receiving Medicaid, food stamps/ SNAP, SSI, public housing assistance, veterans pension or survivor’s pension benefit, or live on federally recognized Tribal lands. To find out if you’re eligible, or to locate wireless companies in your area that participates in the program, visit or call 800234-9473. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

Hospice receives $12,000 donation from Albemarle Foundation in Kings Mountain

CCC awarded $99,000 grant Duke Energy Supports Electrical Lineworker Academy

Duke Energy recently announced that it has awarded a grant totaling $99,508 to support Cleveland Community College’s Electrical Lineworker Academy. “We’re very grateful for Duke Energy’s continued support of our Electrical Lineworker Academy,” said Ken Mooney, vice president of Continuing Education at CCC. “Duke has been a strong industry partner and these funds will help us continue to provide training to prepare men and women for these high-demand lineworker jobs. Over the past year, graduates from our 10-week program have all received job offers and many have new jobs before they graduate.” This grant will help more potential candidates learn about this great career path. Among other things, the grant will help support an introductory, career pathway exploration course. This course will be informative and active. Participants will experience just enough line-

worker exercises to create interest or help them decide this career is not right for them. “Cleveland Community College has created an outstanding program in a short period of time,” said Craig DeBrew, Duke Energy district manager. “Our industry depends on a pipeline of highly-skilled workers, and we are proud to partner with the college as they prepare North Carolina’s workforce of the future.” This is the second large grant CCC has received from Duke Energy this year. Back in February the company, in conjunction with Piedmont Natural Gas, announced a $200,000 grant to help support pre-apprenticeship training for students by covering course fees and materials needed in the Electrical Lineworker Academy. Registration is now open for the fall Academy, which begins October 1, 2018. Call 704-669-4015 to begin the registration process. Financial assistance is available, but students need to complete the pre-registration requirements to qualify.

This the 13th day of June, 2018.

On June 6th, 2018, Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office received a tip that an unidentified person sent a text message to the tipster about wanting to sell them heroin. It became clear that the seller had texted the wrong phone number. Investigators followed up on the tip by contacting the seller about the heroin. Undercover investigators agreed to meet the seller near Fallston, to buy heroin. The seller agreed to drive from Morganton. Three suspects arrived at the meeting place and the seller was identified. Sheriff’s deputies conducted a take-down of three suspects, but no heroin was recovered. During the arrest, it was determined that the suspects planned to rob the investigator they believed to be the buyer. Two fake, yet realistic-looking handguns, and several knives were found in the suspect



vehicle. Jacob Ballard Hensley, of Morganton, received a $50,000 secured bond; Rodney Justin Crisp, of Glen Alpine, received a $50,000 secured bond; and Brittany Nichole Branch, of Nebo, received a $25,000 secured bond. All three subjects had their first appearance in court on June 7th, 2018. Sheriff Alan Norman said, “We constantly remind citizens of the very real dangers of using illegal narcotics. This is yet another reason not to use drugs. Had this been an ac-


tual user trying to buy heroin, they would have been robbed at gunpoint, and quite likely much worse. The three arrestees are examples of desperate drug addicts doing whatever it takes, regardless of the consequences, to get their next high. Our investigators are great at what they do; they are even better when they get the help of concerned citizens with actionable information. That partnership is crucial.” Provided by Cleveland County Sheriff’s office

Gaston County Police make arrests in homicide On 6/7/2018 at 9:07 am, Gaston County Police received a call from a passing motorist about a possible shooting on Ivey Drive near Humphrey Blvd. Upon arrival, responding officers located a deceased male lying in the roadway.

ping. They are being held without bond in the Gaston County Jail. All suspects had varying degrees of associations with each other and the victim.

Prevent summertime tragedies: Never leave children alone in hot cars Safe Kids North Carolina reminds parents of the dangers of leaving kids in vehicles in the summer heat RALEIGH – As this weekend’s temperatures climb into the 90s, Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey and Safe Kids North Carolina are reminding people of the dangers of leaving children unattended in hot cars, even for just a few minutes. According to Safe Kids Worldwide, across the United States, more than 740 children have died since 1998 because they were trapped in a hot car. That’s nearly 40 deaths per year that could have been prevented – if only some precautionary steps had been taken. “It’s never a good idea to leave children unattended in cars, especially as the weather warms up,” said Commissioner Causey. “One child’s death is one too many, so I’m asking all parents and caregivers to take a few simple steps to prevent an avoidable tragedy.” Children are at a greater risk for heatstroke than adults because their body heats up three to five times faster. According to Safe Kids Worldwide, when the body’s temperature reaches 104 degrees, a child’s inter-

nal organs start to shut down. When it reaches 107 degrees, the child can die. On an 80- degree day, the inside of a closed car can quickly exceed 100 degrees. Unfortunately, cracking a window does not help keep the inside of a car cool. Safe Kids national program “Never Leave a Child Alone in a Car” is raising awareness about the dangers of heatstroke. Safe Kids NC wants everyone to ACT: • A: Avoid heatstroke-related injury and death by never leaving a child alone in a car, not even for a minute. Remember to keep your car locked when you’re not in it so kids can’t get in on their own. • C: Create reminders so

you don’t mistakenly leave your child in back by putting something with them that you’ll need at your final destination such as a briefcase, a purse or a cell phone. • T: Take action. If you see a child alone in a car, call 9-1-1. Emergency personnel want you to call. They are trained to respond to these situations. One call could save a life. Safe Kids North Carolina reaches out to parents, caregivers and children in 71 counties served by 46 coalitions across the state.
