Check The Back Seat

As the heat rises so does hot-car death rates. New technology may be able to help cut these down.

Drivers get reminders to wear a seat-belt, turn off the headlights and close the gas-tank door. Now, they’re also getting alerts to check the back seat for young passengers.

Nissan’s rear-door alert system will become standard on all four-door trucks, cars and SUVs with power locks by its 2022 model year. The system has door sensors, a dashboard message and horn ‘chirps’ that remind drivers to check the back seat.

This year 29 children have died from heatstroke while in a hot vehicle.  This makes 2018 one of the deadliest on record. Heatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash related vehicular deaths.

Nissan plans to announce  a system that will remind drivers to check for occupants in the back seat. Nissan’s system will become standard on all four-door trucks, cars and SUVs with power locks by its 2022 model year. Nissan is believed to be the first to make such an alert a standard feature across its fleet of applicable vehicles, a move safety-advocates have long recommended.

You have reminders for seat-belts, but should you really have a reminder not to leave your children in the hot car?

Doggone, It’s Summer!

It is getting hotter and hotter in Texas. Do not forget that we aren’t the only ones that feel the heat, our pets do too.

Learn how to keep them as safe as possible  in this heat. Don’t leave them in cars. Have their chip/id information updated, and leave them plenty of shade and water if outdoors. Something my dog likes is to chew on ice cubes, so I put some in his water bowl when he’s outside playing in order to keep him cool and happy. Try not to leave them outside for too long as they can overheat quickly, especially if they drink up all their water. Keep your pets healthy and safe this summer season.

Make sure you and your pets are safe this summer!

Pet Safety For The Summer

Summertime is just around the corner and when we feel the heat, our pets do too! It’s important to protect your pets and keep them from overheating when temperatures are toasty outside, so here are some simple tips to follow.

Keep Them Hydrated

Just like humans, pets need to stay hydrated, especially when the temperature outside starts climbing. Always provide your pet with fresh water and bring a water bottle for them if you go on a walk. When you do go on walks with your pet this summer, be mindful of the time of day you choose to go and for how long you’re outside. Walk in the morning or evening to avoid the highest temperatures of the day, stick to shady areas, and don’t stay outside too long.

Be Mindful of Car Trips

Sometimes our pets have to come with us when we run errands, but that doesn’t mean we have to leave them in the car! The temperature in cars can rise over 20° in 10 minutes during the summertime heat, so never, under any circumstances, should you leave your pet in the car. The US is lucky to have a lot of pet-friendly places, so either take your pet in the store with you or leave them at home.

Watch for Signs of Overheating

Animals can overheat very quickly if they are not properly looked after when it’s hot outside. Be mindful of panting, dizziness, or general disorientation in your pet, as these are all signs of overheating. The quickest ways to cool down pets that are too hot are to bring them inside, give them cool drinking water, and maybe even give them a frozen treat to snack on.

Pay extra attention to your pets and how they are handling the summer heat this season! Get some more tips from Kelly Cass below, if you have any other tips or tricks to keep pets safe during summer, add them in the comments section.

Extreme Heat

Extreme heat is in the forecast. Make sure you are taking precautionary measures to beat the heat! Drink plenty of water and be sure to take breaks in shaded or air-conditioned areas.

Heat stroke, the most serious form of heat-related illness, happens when the body becomes unable to regulate its core temperature. Sweating stops and the body can no longer rid itself of excess heat. Signs include confusion, loss of consciousness, and seizures. Heat stroke is a medical emergency that may result in death! Call 911 immediately.

Illustration of a man's head who sweating

Heat exhaustion is the body’s response to loss of water and salt from heavy sweating. Signs include headache, nausea, dizziness, weakness, irritability, thirst, and heavy sweating.

Illustration of a leg which denotes cramping

Heat cramps are caused by the loss of body salts and fluid during sweating. Low salt levels in muscles cause painful cramps. Tired muscles—those used for performing the work—are usually the ones most affected by cramps. Cramps may occur during or after working hours.

Heat rash, also known as prickly heat, is skin irritation caused by sweat that does not evaporate from the skin. Heat rash is the most common problem in hot work environments.

How do I know if it’s too hot?

  • The temperature rises
  • Humidity increases
  • The sun gets stronger
  • There is no air movement
  • No controls are in place to reduce the impacts of equipment that radiates heat
  • Protective clothing or gear is worn
  • Work is strenuous
