If volunteer laypeople are performing the stabilization, those procedures are covered in Layperson Stabilization.
Move the body onto a wheeled stretcher. Place the head in a Cephalic Ice Bath. Add lots of ice, and a little water. Constantly stir the ice and remove excess water with a pump. Cut free any clothing near the neck. Place bags of ice on the rest of the body, especially on the upper chest and neck. When time allows, double bag the ice bags and also use absorbent to prevent water from dripping.
Move to Vehicle and begin procedure.
