It depends on the cause of their fainting.  Fainting can be caused by very non dangerous issues or it sometimes can be from a dangerous cause.  It is important to try and determine the cause because the treatments vary depending on the cause.  It is probably best to see a doctor and have them help determine what the cause is so you know how to treat it.
