Did you know that heat is the no. 1 killer of weather related deaths per year? It is not even close. Here is the 30 year-average of deaths per year from 1991-2020. An air conditioned car can go to 140° in 10 minutes if out in the sun with the windows closed and air off. Please do NOT leave the kids, pets or anyone in the car.

Have a great week.
Stay safe and healthy.
