Park Service, City to Provide Aid Stations
Keeping warm on lnauguration will be an issue Tuesday. As a safety precaution against frostbite or hypothermia, the National Park Service and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have teamed up to station 16 first aid tents along the National Mall.
The stations are similar to those provided at the mall’s Fourth of July festitivies, Park Service spokesman Bill Line said. Only instead of treating heat stroke and exhaustion, doctors and nurses will be on call to help people keep warm.
D.C. City Administrator Dan Tangherlini said there would be 58 aid stations in all across the city.
