Engine 22 and crew arrived to Kinsley Avenue in Richmond’s southside and found the person overheated from cutting grass.

The person was transported to a local hospital for treatment and is expected to be ok.

The engine’s crew stuck around afterwards and finished mowing the person’s lawn.

With the heat index forecasted to be near or above triple digits, it’s always a good reminder to hydrate before doing any physical activity outdoors this time of year. And it’s also great to recognize the signs of a heat stroke.
