FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- Aside from the Hog victory, heat was on the minds of many fans.

Saturday was one of the hottest game days and with temperatures soaring, medical crews were also on top of their game.

Central EMS added extra staff inside and around Razorback Stadium and expected the majority of their medical emergencies to be heat-related.

They also added eight water stands inside the stadium to help keep folks hydrated but, in the case of an emergency, Central EMS and the University of Arkansas staff were prepared.

"We have added staff to this game and the university has added fans in the concourse as well as water stations so people can go get water. That's different than normal, but we know how hot it's going to be and they're doing everything they can to protect their fans," said Central EMS Assistant Chief Steve Harrison.

Harrison also said alcohol also plays a factor in dehydration and can cause heat-related injuries. So for all Hog games, he is asking folks to be sure to drink water at the game and while tailgating.
