Audio: Police Offer Tips to Keep Children and Pets Safe
Posted at 3:55 p.m.
We’re focusing this week on safety for children and pets in the summer heat — specifically on ensuring that they aren’t left unattended in vehicles.
Today, Andy Wehrlen of our Police Department offers guidance on what residents can do. He notes that we’re all busy, but with a little thought and pre-planning, our most precious cargo — our children — will be safe.
Wehrlen adds, “As you’d never leave your children alone in a vehicle, never leave pets in a parked car.”
Take a few minutes today and take these action steps. Commit to “look before you lock” the doors and make sure no child or pet is left unattended in a vehicle.
