The Nurse-Coordinator for Cheyenne Frontier Days is urging people who are outdoors during the current hot weather to take precautions to avoid dehydration and heat stroke. Laurie Wright says the effects of the weather may be intensified for many visitors who are also not used to Cheyenne’s high elevation. Wright says most of the precautions are simply a matter of common sense, like wearing a hat, drinking plenty of water, and using sunscreen. She says people who are hot but have stopped sweating or who are feeling dizzy or disoriented or become nauseous need to get out of the sun immediately.

She says visitors to Frontier Park are welcome to drop by the first aid station at the park and drink some free water. That station is located behind the ”C’ section stands at the park.
