Pets Don't Belong in Hot Cars

Every year, dogs suffer and die when their guardians make the mistake of leaving them in a parked car—even for “just a minute”—while they run an errand. Parked cars are deathtraps for dogs: On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can soar to between 100 and 120 degrees in just minutes, and on a 90-degree day, the interior temperature can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes.

Please report these incidents to your local law enforcement agencies by calling 9-1-1.  Don't try to take any action on your own.  Document the vehicle description and license tag in the event the vehicle leaves the scene prior to an officer arriving.

The First Line of Defense

Each year, the second full week of April is dedicated to the men and women who serve as Public Safety Telecommunicators.  These are the "first line of defense" individuals you speak with when you activate the 9-1-1 system or call our non-emergency lines needing assistance. 

This time each year, many state and local governments will take time out to honor their “behind-the-scenes heroes,” who are not as visible as the men and women who arrive at the scene of emergencies, but are just as critical to the safety and service provided to the community.

If you will, please help me celebrate these crucial individuals during this time for a job well done, day in and day out!
