    Exclamation Hypothermia

    If you are out in the elements and it is less than 50 degrees...you can quickly fall victim of hypothermia.
    A homeless person in Miami died of hypothermia during a recent cold snap. You need to stay warm but not so warm that you sweat.

    If someone has a mild case of hypothermia...try this put their hands in luke warm water. This will slowly warm them up from the inside out. If the water is too warm it will feel like fire. Unless you really want to share a sleeping bag, warming the hands and feet will bring warmer blood into the core and help save that life.

    FOR EXTREME CASES OF HYPOTHERMIA SEEK MEDICAL AID ASAP...GET THE SLEEPING BAG READY AND CALL 911!!!

    You do not want to send them into shock, and you do not have time to mess around.

    You also want to get out of wet clothing and slowly warm the body.
