As the thermometer rises and those quick trips to the shops become necessary, police would like to reminder everyone to never leave children or pets alone in the car.
The Heat Kills campaign educates the public about the danger of leaving children and animals inside parked vehicles during the hot and sunny weather.
The hot days we are experiencing are a reminder that leaving children or pets in the car is not safe and can lead to serious consequences. Temperatures and humidity can rise very quickly leading to dangerous conditions.
Everyone is urged to remain vigilant and keep the lines of communication open when deciding who is responsible for transporting children from home, dropping them off at holiday activities and who is responsible for picking them up.
