I have been working outside
this week, and from experience it is hot, humid and thirsty
I want every one to have a safe Cattle Raids
The highs for Cattle Raids are forecast to be in
the lower to mid 90's for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
My recommendation for Cattle Raids, the set
up day, the day of the event, the take down and clean up day
is to bring plenty of water and plenty of sports drinks.
What ever you think you are going to need, bring more.
One of the ways to avoid heat related problems is
to drink a lot of water and sports drinks (for electrolyte
replacement). The main building is air conditioned so
there is some escape there.
If you get into heat related problems, I am going
to be very aggressive in treating it. The first step is to
get inside to the cooler environment. The second step is
to cool you down, I use a cold water foot bath. Ice packs
will also be used. I / we will work our hardest to keep a
heat related condition from moving to heat stroke.
If neither of these work, or if you have moved on
to heat stroke, then you will need advance medical care.
Appropriate measures will be taken at that
You can always refuse care at any level, but that
does not prevent me / us from activating the next level of
care, which you will also have the right to refuse when they
Heat related injuries can not be taken lightly.
They can lead to death.
