Winter cold temperatures are another reason for parents and guardians to keep aware that children can be affected in very few minutes. A Toronto area man in Ontario, Canada has been charged for leaving his sleeping toddler child in his car while he went shopping in a Costco store. The temperatures with windchills have been in the -20C to -30C range this week in Toronto and much of Southern Ontario as it is a very cold winter this month.

If you are in charge of young children, be responsible for their well-being and safety. Don't leave kids alone in cars.

Here we go again. Another summer of hot weather and people are still not getting the message.

Multiple stories of pets and kids being left in hot cars. So far this summer at least one child has died and his father is up on charges. Too many pets suffering in cars and having to be rescued, some grateful others angry at the sight of a broken window.

Your pet doesn't need to go shopping with you, just to be left in a hot car, no ventilation, no water. How many more kids and pets will die before getting the message? Perhaps charging parents is the only answer. Not little fines, I'm talking a hefty fine and jail for leaving a child or pet in the car to suffer.

WAKE UP PEOPLE, Leave your pets at home if you are going shopping and don't forget or leave your kids in a car while you go shopping. Why don't you take them with you when you go to the store. One mother said she was gone only a minute, yet video shows she was in a mall for over 40 minutes and her child ended up in the hospital. For God's sake if you don't want to take them into the store with you then leave shopping until you have a sitter for the child. It's not worth a childs life to take them only to be left in the car.

Pets are better left at home, unless taking them to a park or the vets, leaving them in a car while you are gone, is dangerous, reckless and should be criminal.

Speaking of messages, the 7 tips in this article are important for all to know when the heat comes a knocking.

Even moose feel the heat, so pets and humans need to take precautions.

7 tips for staying safe in hot weather

Here are six tips from B.C.'s medical health officers on staying well in hot weather:

1. Stay hydrated

Don't wait until you are thirsty to drink more water; check with your doctor if there are limits on the amount of fluid you are allowed.

MORE | 4 summer hydration tips served up

2. Keep cool

Don't rely on fans alone when the air around you is also hot. Use cool mists or showers, spend time in air-conditioned rooms and buildings if you can, or make a visit to a pool or public water park.

3. Dress smart

Wear loose, light-weight clothing and shade yourself with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses. Stay in the shade or use sunscreen to avoid sunburn.

4. Get everyone out of the car

Children and pets should never be left alone in a parked car: Temperatures can rise to 52 C within 20 minutes in a vehicle when the outside temperature is 34 C, and leaving the windows cracked open won't make enough of a difference to make it safe.

5. Look out for each other

Check on your neighbours who are older, who live alone or who have difficulty leaving their homes, to make sure they are coping.

If you see anyone who isn't dealing with the heat, move them to a shady spot, get them hydrated, and call for help.

Someone who has a high body temperature and is either unconscious, confused or has stopped sweating may be suffering from heatstroke and 911 should be called immediately.

6. Stay informed

Read, watch or listen to local news and weather channels for updated weather statements and warnings, and call public services such as B.C.'s HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 for information on heat-related illness.

7. Just chill

If you have to do tiring work or exercise outdoors, try an get it done in the early morning or later in the evening. If you must exert yourself, drink two to four glasses of a non-alcoholic drink every hour.

An adult uses video and social media to convey just how hot a car interior can get for adults. The purpose is to show viewers that it's not safe for any person to be in a hot car.
The man wanted to raise awareness of the issue after the recent reporting of a toddler left in a car and his father has been charged in the child's death.

It's hot/humid and feeling over 30C here in Southern Ontario. Fortunately a small breeze is stirring the air. While laundry might not complain about the heat, people and pets will.
Moderate your outdoor activities between 11am and 4pm-save shopping errands for cooler hours if you can.
Wear a brimmed hat if you must be outside during the hottest hours. Have water available for drinking.
Have more than one water bowl available indoors and outdoors for your pets; change the water as needed to keep it cool.

Another adult thought leaving her child in a car on a hot day was ok. Why did she not take HER child into the store with her?
http://fox13now.com/2014/08/05/mother-attacks-after-strangers-save-child-from-hot-car/
hen officers arrived, they said the mother told them she left her child in the car because the girl was sleeping.

Authorities said during all the commotion the child vomited and witnesses said they had removed the child’s shirt because “it was wet.”

Officers said the temperature inside the vehicle was 89 degrees when they got to the scene.

People don't come back to life readily after dying.

Parents in warmer US states continue to remain unaware of their little kids in their cars-why, is the radio on or the child's asleep? Stop with the explanation that you thought someone else was minding your children! Put a stuffed toy in the front seat with you after you put your child into his or her carseat.

Unfortunately, some little kids died in hot cars recently. Two made it out alive due to age or an adult passerby alert to the child's presence in a car. http://www.theweathernetwork.com/news/articles/parents-face-charges-after-leaving-child-in-hot-car/49901/

A Florida humane society experienced a death of a dog that was not known to be in a car when a volunteer came to pick up another dog in the same car.

http://www.theweathernetwork.com/news/articles/humane-society-accidentally-leaves-dog-in-hot-car/57246/

A volunteer took the dogs to a transport van. During that time, the van was left running and the dogs were kept cool while a volunteer was called to take the van back to the society.

Another volunteer came to pick up the dogs, but thought only one was being transported.

Rollin's crate was only accessible from the back of the van, while Willow's crate was accessible from the side door.
When another volunteer opened the side door of the vehicle to let Willow out, Rollin was not seen.


There will be a change in how the society deals with transporting pets as a result of the incident.

There continue to be news articles of kids forgotten in cars while the adults left the vehicles to go somewhere. The kids have died.

Here's an article from Miami, Florida, USA that talks about what happens to a child left in a hot car. Including a mannequin child doll in a test scenario.

Please don't leave your vehicle without checking all seats for people or pets (yes, I have seen cars at Walmarts with unattended dogs inside).
