laws and what the community can do to help a child in danger and, Safe Kids Gwinnett will present the current data and prevention strategies. Also included will be a moving talk from the mother of a Georgia child lost to heatstroke in a car who will ask us all to “Remember” to prevent these preventable tragedies. The event is from 2-4 p.m. in the auditorium of the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center, 75 Langley Drive Lawrenceville, GA 30046.
