TAKE EX­TRA CARE AS WEATHER HEATS UP

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

With the warmer weather ap­proach­ing, I would like to re­mind res­i­dents of the dan­gers of leav­ing chil­dren and an­i­mals in ve­hi­cles. The tem­per­a­ture in­side a closed ve­hi­cle on an av­er­age day can reach as much as 30C-40C hot­ter than the out­side tem­per­a­ture. When trav­el­ling in cars en­sure chil­dren in the rear seats are well hy­drated. Never leave a child in a ve­hi­cle with­out adult su­per­vi­sion. On ev­ery trip, re­gard­less of the length, take time to check and ad­just your chil­dren’s har­ness to en­sure it fits. Regularly have your ve­hi­cle ser­viced to en­sure the ef­fec­tive op­er­a­tion of the airconditioning sys­tem. Mt Druitt crime preven­tion of­fi­cer
