Helpful Hints

Never Leave Children Alone in Parked Vehicles
On average, 38 children die in hot cars each year from heat - related deaths after being trapped inside motor vehicles. On a day when the temperature outside is 86 degrees, the temperature inside a car can quickly reach 135 or even 150 degrees! Research shows that leaving the windows open a crack does
little to reduce this oven effect.
