Welcome to the forums!  We ask that when you next check in, you update your profile with your first and last.  The forum rules are to your right linked inside the message from Chief Halton.

To answer your question, if you are asking how high above freezing you should keep your water carriers and medic unit, I would say that the warmer your water is, the longer you can re-curc at the scene before gates start to freeze.  Your Ambu should never get colder than you can warm it before you collect your next hypothermic patient.

If that's not what you meant, correct me and I will try harder.
