NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Nashville Fire Department held a public service announcement Thursday that illustrated the dangers of leaving children in hot cars.

Fire Chief Ricky White discussed the dangers of leaving children in hot cars during the event held at the Fire Training Academy on Buena Vista Pike.

Firefighters also smashed out a car window to rescue a child training dummy from a car seat to demonstrate how they would respond to such emergencies.

At least seven children have died in 2015 across the United States after being left in a hot car, according to nonprofit Kids and Cars.
