Emergency services personnel working the grounds at Country Thunder in Craven want to you to beat the heat safely.
With temperatures in the 30 degree range in the first few days and 25 degrees over Saturday and Sunday, attendees are going to want to stay safe.
One of the ways you can do that is by staying hydrated.
“High heat temperatures, or at any given time, it’s always a good idea to at least have two glasses of water per drink,” said Belinda Mitchell, the festival’s Emergency Services Co-ordinator.
Mitchell said combine alcohol with the high heat people have been subjected to in southern Saskatchewan in recent days, it’s not difficult to become dehydrated.
“Make sure you’re keeping yourself hydrated,” she said. “Alcohol is a diuretic and it will make you dehydrated with you even knowing it.”
Throughout the festival, Mitchell said water bottles will continue to be distributed to those looking a little hot and they’ll continue to remain prepared.
