LANSING, Mich. — Multiple calls were made for medical assistance at the Faster Horses concert event last weekend.

The event took place over one of the hottest weekends Michigan's seen in a long time and the high temps did not help the first responders.

The Cambridge Fire Department told NEWS 10 that they responded to about 410 calls and the Deputy Chief from Addison said that the total calls were probably close to 700.

He also said that 700 is a "little higher than normal."

Chief Dave Aungst of Addison Fire EMS said most of the calls were for heat exhaustion, but some were for intoxication or minor injuries.

The popular event had about 35,000 people in attendance.
