Today is the first day of summer, and the heat is on. Remember that if the temperature outside is 82 degrees, inside a car after only seven minutes, the temperature can rise to 119 degrees.
At around 32 minutes, the temperature inside the car will be about 124 degrees. And, cracking the window will do little to lower the temperature inside the vehicle. A sustained temperature of 104 degrees can be fatal,especially for children or pets.
If you see a pet or child suffering in a hot car, call 911. We can be there in minutes and have the tools to open the door.
