Dozens Treated For Heat Exhaustion In Bristol

(Bristol, RI) -- Some people required a trip to the hospital after attending the 233rd Bristol Fourth of July Parade. Local fire officials said the heat resulted in about 50 being treated at a field hospital set up at the Bristol Fire Department, but a dozen needed further treatment at Rhode Island Hospital. A Mass Casualty Incident was declared before activities started yesterday as a precaution to make it easier to ask for assistance from other first responder agencies.
