Staying Cool In The Heat

While the groundbreaking ceremony was taking place, the Jackrabbits were preparing for its home-opener against Butler.
Along with the Brookings Fire Department, SDSU was taking precautions to keep people safe in the heat. Water stations and misting stations were placed on the north and south side of Coughlin-Alumni Stadium so if tailgaters felt too hot, they had a place to go cool off.
The Brookings Fire Department says is a proactive way to prevent a possible heat illness.
“We want everyone to enjoy the festivities and we want everyone to have fun but we want everybody to be safe,” said Brookings Fire Department Chief Darrell Hartmann.
If the weather continues to stay hot, the department will more than likely offer the facilities for the next home football game as well.
