Summer is definitely here and the triple digit temperatures prove it. With Country Jam here, there will be thousands of people out in that heat.

As the sun beats down health officials warn the importance of drinking water and eliminating or limiting caffeinated and alcoholic drink.
They also say that once you are thirsty it's too late, you are already dehydrated.

Kristy Westerman, Mesa County Health Department says, "People may consume alcohol and not take the proper precautions against heat stroke and heat exhaustion.”

Health officials say signs of heat stroke are a feeling of fatigue and dizziness and your body stops sweating.
