With around 300,000 people at the Canfield Fair this week, a few injuries were bound to happen.

The American Red Cross set up a health services area at the fairgrounds to warn people about dehydration and injuries. 

Paramedics were also on site to help if anything goes wrong. 

So far, they say this week has gone by pretty accident-free.

“We’ve had run-of-the-mill stuff — some bee stings, some blisters, and people coming out overcome by the heat — but hey, that’s what we’re here for,” said Alan Scannell, of the Red Cross. 

Temperatures soared above 90 degrees for the final day of the fair on Monday.
