Importance of prehydration for firefighters stressed

Preparing to go out in the heat is critical, regardless of whether or not you end up inside a structure fire

By Ann Williamson
Topeka Capital-Journal

TOPEKA, Kan. — Different water cups line the breakfast table at Topeka Fire Station 3, 318 S.E. Jefferson. Each one is a little bit bigger than the last, until finally a pitcher is placed in front of a plate.

This pitcher isn't for the entire table but for one firefighter that is trying to keep his fluid level up — or prehydrating, as they have taken to calling it.
