Summer safety!

#NSFfunded researchers @ASUonline and @UCSanDiegoSchoolofMedicine found that as the sun beats down on a summer day, the interior temperature of a car can reach a stifling 116 degrees Fahrenheit in just one hour. It takes only one hour for a young child trapped in a car to suffer fatal injuries from that same heat. For more information:
