Heat Safety: Check the backseat

Keep your children and pets safe during the summer heat.
  • Never leave your child or pet unattended in a car, even with the windows rolled down.
  • Always make sure all children & pets have left the car. Never leave a sleeping infant in the car.
  • Make sure safety restraints aren't too hot before securing your child.
