In brief: Stay hydrated
Take in plenty of fluids, cover the head and get out of the heat before problems occur.

In brief: Heat Stroke!
Heat stroke is the most serious form of heat injury and is considered a medical emergency.
If you suspect that someone has heat stroke -- also known as sunstroke -- call an ambulance immediately and give first aid until paramedics arrive. http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/heat-stroke-symptoms-and-treatment#1

In brief: Water
Pre-hydrate in hot weather before going outside.
Maintain fluid and electrolyte intake while outside. Wear loose light colored clothe(to reflect the sun) and a loose fitting--well-ventilated hat. If you can, get out of the sun (shade or indoors) periodically. Observe your sweating or lack thereof. Failure to sweat in hot weather is an excellent indicator of heat stroke.
