If you suspect that an employee or tenant is showing the symptoms of heat exhaustion or heat stroke, it is important to take action quickly. Time is of the essence in order to minimize the risk of serious injury or death.
If the person has lost consciousness or seems confused, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY. Next, apply ice as quickly as possible. These symptoms may indicate heat stroke, which can be deadly and must be treated immediately.
