WHAT DO I DO???? If the person is overheated:
Reduce their body temperature while you wait for help. Apply cold, wet cloths to the head, neck, armpits, and inside leg area near the groin. Take off any heavy clothing e.g. jackets and jumpers If the person is unconscious: Move them to a safe place if they are in danger Make sure that an ambulance (000) has been called Place the person on their side and bend the top leg, bringing it up so it rests in front of their body (this will prevent the person from rolling onto their back) Check to see that the person is breathing properly. You may need to tilt the head back to open the airways, and clear the airways if they are obstructed by vomit, etc. If the person isn't breathing, perform mouth to mouth immediately and wait for the ambulance.
