Temperatures expected to soar at Country Thunder Saturday and Sunday

Emergency service crews are warning Country Thunder Saskatchewan fans about the hot weather that has taken over in the province.

With Environment Canada forecasting a day time high of 29 for Saturday and 30 on Sunday, there’s cause for concern for campers that will be spending a good amount of time outside during the day.

Emergency Services Coordinator Belinda Mitchell said there’s two locations people can find medical help if need be.

“We have the two locations down at the end of Main Street, one at the dispatch office and the other out back,” Mitchell said.

Mitchell added mixing in water periodically is also very important during the outdoor festival.

“Alcohol takes away our bodies ability to regulate its temperature, so we ask that people keep themselves well hydrated because if people do become dehydrated sometimes symptoms can be masked by the alcohol and then we see patients conditions deteriorate very quickly,” said Mitchell.

The Weather Office says strong thunderstorms are also possible over the weekend in the valley area.

Saturday’s entertainment on the main stage is jam-packed, including the Reklaws, Travis Tritt, and headliner Tim McGraw at 10:30 p.m.
