If someone becomes ill after dancing and
may have taken ecstacy... they may be experiencing heat stroke.
They become very red and hot but do not sweat, they may feel sick
and confused. Heat stroke can be very dangerous. Take them to
a cool, quiet place and encourage them to drink a non fizzy soft
drink. On no account give them coffee or any drinks that contain
caffeine, as this will increase the effect of the drug. Call an
ambulance. Keep them cool, by fanning them or pouring cool water
over them until they reach normal body temperature. DO NOT let
them become chilled, cover them if necessary.
If someone has a panic attack...
be calm, reassure them, take them to a cool, quiet place and give
them a few sips of water - nothing else. If there is no improvement
in 5 to 10 minutes call an ambulance.
Remember when in doubt call an ambulance.
Calling an ambulance does not summon the police unless you say
you need police assistance.
