Tip: Video: Staying hydrated on duty

Dave Smith
“JD Buck Savage”

The human body is always dehydrating — regardless of the climate, the temperature, or the geography in which that body is operating. The effects of dehydration are not only physical — they’re mental as well. One of the first capabilities a dehydrated person will lose is their ability to think quickly and critically. Keep fluids in your squad car so you can keep replenishing fluids in your body.
