  • Never Leave Children, Disabled Adults or Pets in a Parked Vehicle

    It is getting hotter and hotter. Today may be the hottest day (so far) of 2016. We want to help you keep others safe and prevent a tragedy. An average of 37 children per year and untold numbers of pets left in parked vehicles die from heat stroke (hyperthermia). Studies have shown that the temperature inside a parked vehicle can rapidly rise to a dangerous level for children, pets and even adults. Leaving the windows slightly open does not significantly decrease the heating rate.
