found this chart via [tumblr.com profile] annabellioncourt during my travels through tumblr. since it will get hotter before it gets cooler, especally in the south & southwest, this is info people need. if you don't want to look at the chart, this info is as follows.


HEAT EXHAUSTION
  • feeling faint or dizzy
  • excessive sweating
  • cool, pale, clammy skin
  • nausea or vomiting
  • rapid, weak pulse
  • muscle cramps
treatment: get to a cool, air conditioned place. drink water if fully conscious. take a cool shower or use cool compresses. (i suggest using them around your neck or on the inside of your wrists, where the blood vessels or arteries are close to the surface.)

HEAT STROKE
  • throbbing headache
  • no sweating
  • body temperature above 103 F (39.4 C) red, hot, dry skin
  • nausea or vomiting
  • rapid, strong pulse
  • may lose consciousness
treatment: CALL 911 (or whatever equlivent is in your country) take immediate action to cool the person until help arrives. (i suggest providing shade, maybe getting them inside if they're on hot cement & use cool compresses on them)
