Plenty of Beer and Water at Country Concert
FORT LORAMIE -- Hot conditions didn't prevent thousands of people from camping out Thursday at Country Concert in Fort Loramie.
It's no secret, Country Concert is a weekend long party with a lot of alcohol consumption and no air conditioning, which can be dangerous in the heat if you don't get plenty of water. More than 50,000 concert goers were expected to attend the concert.
"We got beer and two waters to stay hydrated, my mom said I had too," said Sarah Patty.
Shelby County authorities have issued the same recommendation. They're hoping to limit the number of heat related illnesses.
"We've done a lot of public service announcements on the speaker systems asking them to use moderation, drink lots of water, and keep in the shade as much as they can," said Shelby Co. Sheriff John Lenhart.
But there are plenty of people not taking that advice. Shelly Miller had to be rushed to the medics tent Thursday afternoon to be treated for heat exhaustion.
"I got too hot sitting in the 100 degree weather," she said.
Country Concert brought in extra paramedics to deal with what's sure to be a higher number of heat related calls than usual.
"We know people like to come out, have a good time and have a few beers, but they need to have water too because if they don't, the beer will dehydrate them," said MedCorp paramedic Drew Croy.
Most campers did have at least a little water on them. Some came prepared with gallon jugs of water, hoping to stay cool and still have a good time.
