WBGT – Wet Bulb with Tom Woods

Wet Bulb Globe Temperature is the standard for protecting from heat illness which is 100% preventable in athletics. Tom Woods discusses where we are as a state in adopting it.

What is the ATLAS ambassador?

What changes would you make to protocols in Texas?

WBGT takes in several more important factors than Heat Index

Don’t forget about band, dance, cheer in your WBGT needs

What is the next major tech advancement you would like to see?

Switching to WBGT and becoming a mandate rather than a recommendation.

NFHS covers 48 states..but not TEXAS

Will heat illness training become a required training?
