Move the casualty to a cool place

Get them to lie down with feet slightly raised

Give plenty of water to rehydrate (sports or rehydration drinks are OK)

Cool their skin – spray or sponge with cool water and fan them. Cold packs around the neck and armpits are also good

Stay with them until they feel better

Monitor their response levels
