The Green Bay Packers and corporate partner Mills Fleet Farm are teaming up to help battle Sunday's forecasted cold, with the Wisconsin-based retailer donating 30,000 hand warmers for fans entering the game.
The hand warmers will be available in Mills Fleet Farm carts located at all four main gates: Miller Brewing Company, Oneida Nation, Mills Fleet Farm and Verizon Wireless. Warmers will be available until the supply runs out, so each fan is asked to limit the amount taken in order to ensure the widest distribution.
Additionally, all Packers Pro Shop locations in the stadium carry hand and foot warmers.
Dr. Don Hartig, of the Bellin Health Family Medical Center in Howard, Wis., on Thursday issued some advice for combating the cold. Included among his tips were to dress appropriately, wearing loose, dry layers, wear a hat, try mittens instead of gloves, wear waterproof insulated boots, drink warm beverages and drink alcohol in moderation.
Lambeau Field concession stands will be serving hot cocoa and hot coffee, as well as hot food. All Lambeau Field personnel will be able to assist fans who may encounter cold-related issues. EMS personnel are on patrol throughout the concourses, as well as at First Aid Stations found underneath Section 133 in the main concourse and near Section 330 in the upper concourse.
