Cool First. Transport Second.

"Death from exertional heat stroke is 100 percent preventable when proper recognition and treatment protocols are implemented..." 

"Cold water immersion is the most effective way to treat a patient with exertional heat stroke..."

"An athlete suffering from exertional heat stroke should always be cooled first (via cold water immersion) before being transported by EMS to an emergency facility..." 

Excerpts from the Executive Summary of National Athletic Trainers’ Association Position Statement on Exertional Heat Illnesses (2014)
