 Subject: [MAGMOR] Recommendations for Cattle Raids

 I have been working outside
 this week, and from experience it is hot, humid and thirsty
 work. 
 I want every one to have a safe Cattle Raids
 experience.
 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
 time. 
 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
 get there. 
 
 Heat related injuries can not be taken lightly.
  They can lead to death.
