Always check the backseat for kids

It’s getting hotter outside. So, make sure you check the backseat for kids.

On average, about 38 children die each year from being left in hot cars.

The temperature inside a car can be 30 to 40 degrees hotter than outside.

In just five minutes, that heat can cause serious health problems for kids as the body temperature of children increases 3-5 times faster than adults.

A car can get to 110 degrees even when it is in the 60s.

Heatstroke can begin at a body temperature of 104 degrees and death can happen at 107 degrees.

So, always check the backseat for kids as well as pets.
