Heatstroke First Aid and Prevention

image8

If you think a person may be experiencing heatstroke, seek immediate medical help. Call 911 or your local emergency services number.​


Take immediate action to cool the overheated person while waiting for emergency treatment.  


*Get the person into the shade or indoors.

*Remove excess clothing.

*Cool the person with whatever means available — put in a cool tub of water or a cool shower, spray with a garden hose, sponge with cool water, fan while misting with cool water, or place ice packs or cold, wet towels on the person's head, neck, armpits and groin.

Here are some simple reminders to prepare for safe summer days:


  1. Stay cool in the heat.
  2. Wear the right helmet.
  3. When thunder roars, go indoors.
  4. Pack an emergency kit.
  5.  Keep food fresh.
  6. Don't drink/smoke and drive.


Points to Ponder

Teasing can strengthen a relationship by showing closeness and affection with another person.​


The affectionate interaction of teasing can turn hostile when the person being teased is distressed by the teasing. ​




We are living in a culture of suspicion towards people whose disability is not immediately obvious. Imagine having heart disease or MS, being able to walk only a short distance, and being treated as a potential fraudster when you dare to park in a disabled parking.
