The article, authored by MACS technical advisor Ward Atkinson, explores the science behind the potential exposure to dangerously high body temperatures that can occur to a person or animal remaining in a parked vehicle without an operating A/C system.

“We see it every summer, the tragic death of a child or animal left behind in a hot car,” explained Elvis L. Hoffpauir, MACS president and chief operating officer. “MACS has released this article in hopes of driving awareness of the problem to help save lives.”

    Great reminder for everyone this summer. Even just a few minutes in a car with this heat and I am itching to get out so when the car is off, everyone should be out. Thanks for posting.
