GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay firefighters are urging fans to find ways to stay cool during Sunday's Packers-Bengals game at Lambeau Field. It could set a record for the hottest game played at Lambeau Field.
Unseasonably warm temperatures and a 3:25 p.m. start time could cause some fans to overheat.
StormCenter 2 Chief Meteorologist Steve Beylon says: "We're forecasting kickoff temperatures in the upper-half of the 80s, but with the humidity, it's going to feel more like 90 degrees.
This will likely become the hottest Packer game played in Green Bay since the Packers kept track in 1959. On October 6th, 1963 when the field was the new 'City Stadium', the temperature reached 84 degrees as the Packers crushed the L.A. Rams 42-10."
The Green Bay Metro Fire Department says these are the symptoms of heat-related illness:
Firefighters have this advice to stay cool:
-Drink plenty of non-caffeinated and non-alcoholic drinks
-Wear loose fitting, lighter colored clothing
-Seek shade when possible
-Protect against sunburn
-Apply active cooling measures such as fans or ice towels
-If such measures fail to provide relief within 30 minutes, seek medical attention. As always, GBMFD will be at Lambeau Field providing EMS services before, during and after the game.
