The signs of heatstroke / exhaustion to look out for
- If you feel dizzy, weak or have intense thirst and a headache, move to a cool place as soon as you can. Drink some water or diluted fruit juice to rehydrate and avoid alcohol.
- If you have painful muscular spasms (particularly in the legs, arms, or abdomen), rest immediately in a cool place and drink electrolyte drinks. Most people should start to recover within 30 mins and if not, you should seek medical help. Call 111 if you feel unusual symptoms, or if symptoms persist
Call 999 if a person develops any signs of heatstroke as this is a medical emergency. Further information on heatstroke and heat-related illness is available at: www.nhs.uk/conditions/heat-exhaustion-heatstroke
