FREE Emergency Car Door Unlocking To Save Your Kids
Our Pop-A-Lock of Austin PALSavesKids program has rescued over 350,000 children nationwide since 1991. If you see a child OR pet locked in an automobile, call 911 first and then call Pop-A-Lock of Austin. With your help, we are committed to keeping the death count in the greater Austin area at zero year round. We will unlock the vehicle for FREE to rescue trapped children.
PALSavesKids is a national free community service program that was originally launched in 1991 under its former name, Emergency Door Unlocking. Since that time, Pop-A-Lock associates have saved over 350,000 children across the country for free. The program now includes a new call-to-action: PALSaves 1-2-3; 1-stop, 2-look, 3-lock, which is accompanied by a new mascot, the PALS Puppy. The new mascot is a gentle reminder to parents to look before you lock your vehicle.
“Our organization receives calls virtually every day about a child who has been mistakenly locked in the family car,” said Don Marks, CEO of Pop-A-Lock. “In fact, more children die of heat stroke from being locked in a car, than are killed by forward-moving accidents which is a senseless tragedy.” He added, “Please follow our PALSavesKids prompt and stop and look before you lock your vehicle, but if you forget, call Pop-A-Lock immediately, along with emergency services, and we’ll come open your car for free.”
Call Pop-A-Lock of Austin if you need your child or pet rescued from your locked vehicle.
