NJ Child Assault Prevention Encourages Involvement in #NotLeftBehind Campaign
Help NJ CAP in the prevention of child heat-stroke related deaths
Mullica Hill, NJ – During the months of August and September NJ Child Assault Prevention (NJ CAP) and their host agency, EIRC will be promoting the #NotLeftBehind campaign, which seeks a simple reminder method on how not to forget your child in the car.
Last year 44 children succumbed to heat related deaths in cars. So far, 18 children have died this summer, and research is revealing that in most of these cases, the parent/caretaker was in states of stress or distraction to the point of total forgetfulness. To address this issue, NJ CAP is partaking in a no-tech, no-cost method which is being spread through social media. The #NotLeftBehind campaign advises you to leave your left shoe on the seat or floor next to the car seat after the child is strapped in. By doing so, you will remember your shoe and the child in the backseat, eliminating the possibility for future hardships.
NJ CAP encourages the community to participate in this campaign to help prevent the possibilities of future heat-stroke related deaths among children being left behind in cars. To participate use the hashtag #NotLeftBehind and show us your left shoe!

School Bus Ads: Don’t Text and Drive
Central Regional School District is the most recent district in New Jersey to place advertisements on their bus fleet as a means to generate revenue. Berkeley Auto Body, a family tradition since 1945, decided to send a message to others on the road – ‘Don’t Text and Drive.’ The auto body shop, which is located in Bayville, has placed advertisements on two buses transporting children to and from school.
Central Regional School District has partnered with SchoolBusAds.org, a service of the Educational Information and Resource Center. This service provides schools districts across the state of New Jersey the opportunity to raise additional funds with a resource the district already owns. Jackson Township in Ocean County and Washington Township in Gloucester County are two of the many other school districts that have signed on with SchoolBusAds.org to increase revenues for their district.
