Keep children out of hot cars

We've heard this before but it's a good reminder with a great tip for never forgetting a small sleeping child in your car. 
During the summer months, temperatures within a vehicle can reach up to 120 degrees even on a moderately cool day. A child’s body heats up 3-5 times faster than an adult’s body and can rise to 106 degrees within 10-15 minutes of being left unattended in a hot vehicle. If you see a child unattended in a vehicle, call 911 immediately. 

Helpful tip

Put your purse or briefcase in the back seat and make “look before you leave” a routine before locking the car.
