Logo SOSWith June celebrated as National Internet Safety Month, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson is reminding parents that they can help keep their kids safe by joining the ProtectMiChild Registry.

The registry is a free and secure program housed on the Secretary of State website that families and schools can use to block adult-oriented ads.Concerned parents or schools may register the electronic addresses for any devices children use. The registry will block adult Internet ads for all registered contact points for three years or until the youngest child with access to the contact point reaches the age of 18. Once the information has been entered into the registry, companies that send messages that advertise or link to prohibited products or services are required to remove the registered contact email, phone number or IM within 30 days from their mailing lists. ProtectMiChild registrations may be renewed at any time for an additional three-year period.

Logo MDHHSAs part of Heat Stroke Prevention Day, The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is reminding parents and caregivers to never leave children alone in vehicles. Nationwide, more than 138 children died from heatstroke between 2013 and 2016, and all of these deaths are preventable.

It doesn’t have to be the middle of the summer for a child to get overheated. The temperatures inside a car can increase 20 degrees in as little as ten minutes, and because a child’s body heats up three to five times faster than adult’s, they are more susceptible to heatstroke. Temperatures inside a car can double the temperature outside.
