Evenflo Weighs in on Heatstroke Prevention Bill

Evenflo’s SensorSafe Technology Makes Prevention Accessible Now

MIAMISBURG, Ohio--()--Evenflo, the juvenile products brand that first introduced technology to prevent children from being left in hot vehicles, today reviewed the Helping Overcome Trauma for Children Alone in Rear Seat Act, or the HOT CARS act, introduced this week by U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal.

“We understand purchasing a new car with child-sensing technology isn’t an option for many new families”

“We are glad the bill introduced by Senator Blumenthal is highlighting the same issue we developed SensorSafe car seat technology to address — child heatstroke prevention,” said Evenflo CEO Jon Chamberlain.

Evenflo SensorSafe-equipped car seats alert caregivers when a child is still in the car seat when the car has been turned off.

“We understand purchasing a new car with child-sensing technology isn’t an option for many new families,” said Chamberlain. “This is why we’re pricing Evenflo SensorSafe technology to be within anyone’s reach. For less than you’d expect, you can have peace of mind now,” he said.

Evenflo’s line of SensorSafe-equipped car seats includes five car seats as low as $150, and can be found at http://evenflo.com/sensorsafe/sensorsafe.html.

The first six months of 2017 have been some of the hottest on record, and July saw the highest number of hot car deaths among children in five years.

“Evenflo will continue to make injury and death prevention a priority by expanding our line of SensorSafe-equipped seats and investing in this technology,” said Chamberlain.

Evenflo, named one of the Top 10 Most Innovative Companies of 2016 by Fast Company, provides parents smart and simple solutions aimed at the safety and well-being of children. Evenflo is also proud to have developed the ExerSaucer — the originator of the activity center category, showcasing the company’s long-standing expertise in protecting and delighting children.
