Children, pets, adults, no one should be left or sit in an overheated car. 

Every year, there are cases where people have forgotten their loved ones or pets. HEMSI Community Relations Officer Don Webster says to avoid this, it's important to pay extra close attention. "We just need to use common sense and not get so preoccupied and not become such major creatures of habit when we're traveling with loved ones or other people in the car that we might be responsible for."

One way to make sure you leave no one behind? Putting your bags in the backseat, or put your cell phone in the backseat.

Cars sitting in the sun are not the only thing to look out for. It's also good to keep in mind the temperature of the concrete, especially when taking pets for a walk.
