We're Not Out of the Heat Yet

Don't let recent cooler temperatures fool you to think it is safe to leave your pet or child in the car. Even if outside temperatures are in the 70's, the temperature inside a car can rise 20 degrees in as little as 10 minutes and 50 degrees within an hour.

Take some time during the "cool down" to prepare for when things heat back up by visiting the Get Ready for Extreme Heat page.
