Rescue Mission’s Hot Patrol Helps Beat The Heat

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- With temperatures headed into the upper 90s and low 100s, the Nashville Rescue Mission has gone into action, starting its annual hot patrol.

The Nashville Rescue Mission hot patrol springs into action when the temperature climbs to 94 degrees.

The Mission has seven trucks out patrolling the community. The truck brigade is handing out water to people in need to help keep them cool and hydrated.

"Many times they're out in the community de-hydrated. They have health issues that are complicated by de-hydration, and so to be able to give them a cup of water, that's everything to them," said Ed Grimes with the Nashville Rescue Mission.
