The Dangers of a Hot Car
3. If the authorities don’t show up in a timely manner, and you see
The official start of summer is only a few weeks away. While there are a lot of fun things to look forward to, this month we wanted to talk about something really serious. More children and pets die in hot cars in Texas than anywhere else in the country. Most of the time, these are really tragic accidents that occur after a moment of forgetfulness or ignorance to how dangerous a hot car can be. Even if it’s only 70 degrees outside, the inside of a car can reach 104 degrees in just 30 minutes — and it only takes 10 minutes for a hot car to become deadly. Leaving your car windows cracked open won’t prevent a deadly situation.
the pet or child is exhibiting the signs of heat stroke — such as panting, redness, vomiting, lethargy, or lack of coordination — take action to safely remove the child or pet from the vehicle. 4. Take the child or pet to an air-conditioned building, give them water, or have them taken to the hospital or vet. Keep in mind that while there are laws that protect good Samaritans from repercussions should they have to break into a car to rescue a child, no such laws cover pet rescues. But it only takes a few minutes for a dog or child to die from heat stroke. If you do come across a pet or a young child in a hot car, look for help immediately because every second counts. And never leave your child or dog alone in a hot car. It only takes “just a minute” for tragedy to strike. Izzy & Emma
What should I do if I see a child or a dog alone in a hot car?
1. Write down the vehicle type and license plate number and page the car owner at the closest businesses. 2. If the parent or pet owner doesn’t appear quickly, call 911 or the local human authority.
