Apply cool water to their skin or wrap them in damp sheets. Place them in a cool bath if they are conscious and able to cooperate. Tip Accelerate body cooling using a fan to blow cool air across the patient's skin.

The things you should NEVER DO. 1 don't give a victim a cool bath, it is important to cool the victim gradually and not fast if you cool the victim too fast, the victim will go into shock. 2 don't give the the victim sports drinks, all of that salt and sugar is going to dehydrate your body more, plus sports drinks before going into a scorcher is where you got heat stroke in the first place.

You are treating for Heat Exhaustion, not Heat Stroke.  No liquid is to be given and EMS is to be contacted asap

I remember when I had a heat stroke in school during an assembly. Luckily the office (and nurses office) was right next to the MP room. Here's how it felt. My vision got blurry and almost pixelated when I got up and grabbed my chair. I also felt weak and lightheaded. Also luckily; some adults noticed and told me to walk into the office and get admitted. The assembly was ironically about strokes.
Do NOT take a cold bath. Will cause shivering, which increases body temp. Nurse advised cool room instead.

I almost passed out yesterday due to heat stroke. I fell down a flight of stairs surprisingly un harmed, and barely made to my destination. Then drank 5-6 Bottles of water and Poured about a Gallon on my self. Then swam in a lake. I did ok.
Getting a heatstroke actually kinda looks fun.

This is for *heat exhaustion.* Heat *stroke* is a 911 emergency. The ONLY treatment for heat stroke is calling 911, and dousing the person in cold water until the medics arrive.
