One of the most important things we all need to know is car safety. Every summer our call center alone gets calls to come to save children or pets that have been left in a car. This is a very severe issue.
You know parked cars get hot, but what you might not realize is that a car’s interior temperature can rise 20 degrees in just 10 minutes.
Leaving the windows cracked or rolled down does not slow heat acceleration, nor does it cool the interior, especially on wind-free days.
Sun exposure on a parked car has the same effect, even in mild outdoor temperatures. Never leave a child or a pet closed up in a parked car on a sunny day, even just for a minute!
Stay safe this summer.
