Saturday's home game in Neyland Stadium is going to be a hot one, and the American Red Cross is reminding fans to be prepared to beat the heat.

At kickoff, temperatures are expected to be in the 80's, and keep climbing.

At last week's game, 61 people were treated for various health issues, including hydration, at the Red Cross First Aid Station. Dozens of others were given water, a towel, or first aid supplies.

First Aid volunteers will be standing by again on Saturday to provide first aid to anyone in need and to contact emergency officials if necessary.

FAST is a program of the American Red Cross East Tennessee Region and provides First Aid services onsite. Our volunteer leaders are trained to be liaisons between event staff and first responders.
