HB 604 – Require Safety Call/Child Care Facilities

Primary House Sponsors: Rep. Ted Davis, Jr. (R-New Hanover)




This bill, in an effort to reduce the number of child vehicular heat stroke deaths, requires DHHS to make child care facilities conduct a morning safety call to the parents/guardians of children under the age of 5 enrolled in the facility no more than 30 minutes after determining a child’s absence when the parent/guardian has not provided prior notice of the child’s absence to the facility.
