CWS Fans Coping With the Heat

We’re in a typical pattern for the weather during the College World Series. When we’re not watching for the potential of severe storms, the heat and humidity are posing a challenge.

Michigan’s Colleen Reed called the conditions, “Scorching. Kind of reminds me of Michigan weather in in way because it’s very humid.”

Colleen and her group break out the sun screen and do whatever they can to stay cool in the heat. That includes, “drinking a lot of water, hitting shade as much as we can, wearing hats."

There are times when fans at the College World Series need a little medical help. Any kind of emergency can pop up when there are so many people in one place and if that happens, officials are ready to respond both inside and outside of the stadium.

The Omaha Fire Department’s Dan Olsen said, “We have teams of EMTs and paramedics in place on site to respond to those emergencies and we will call in our paramedics and ambulance to transport those patients to the hospital if need be.”

Paramedics have responded to fans who have had debris flying into their eyes, who have fallen down or simply overheated. You can bring water bottles into the stadium. There is water there to fill them. Officials just want you to be careful and watch yourself in this hot weather.
