Stay hydrated

Before each shift, fill and freeze a couple of water bottles or reusable containers with good old H2O and toss them in your patrol bag. You'll have a gradual supply of cold water throughout your shift without having to stop at your local convenience store. Avoid sugary, caffeinated drinks and high fat, high sodium foods; these will exacerbate your dehydration and can make that gun belt a little too snug.
