Never leave children, pets, or the elderly unattended in a parked

warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
Drownings tend to occur during hot spells in western Washington.
Area rivers and lakes can be dangerously cold for swimming this

spring snowmelt. Hypothermia and drowning due to cold water shock
can occur in area waters this time of year.
