ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE HEAT THIS SUMMER? 

Extreme heat events can have a detrimental impact on communities. They affect many parts of everyday life such as health and wellbeing, energy and infrastructure, public transport and agriculture. They also create increased fire risk and heat stressed trees, which pose a significant threat to public safety. 

Here are some simple things you can do to reduce the impact of extreme heat: 
  • Stay Hydrated - you should drink two to three litres of water a day even if you don't feel thirsty. Avoid 'fizzy', alcoholic and caffeinated drinks and do not take salt tablets (unless instructed to by a doctor)
  • Dress For Summer - lightweight, light coloured clothing reflects heat and sunlight and helps your body maintain a normal temperature
  • Check On Those At Risk - visit at-risk individuals such as the sick and elderly at least twice a day and keep an eye on children. Watch for signs of heat-related illness
  • Minimise Sun Exposure - keep out of the sun as much as possible. If you must be in the sun, wear a shirt, hat and sunglasses. Also make sure you wear sunscreen to prevent sunburn, which limits the body's ability to cope with heat
  • Prepare Your Home - Prepare your home early. Service or replace your air conditioner BEFORE you need it. Curtains, awnings and blinds can also help to keep the home cool
  • Make Use Of Air Conditioning - If you don't have air conditioning, make use of public facilities such as shopping centres, art galleries, cinemas or other air conditioned buildings. Portable fans are also useful in drawing in cool air, or exhausting warm air from a room
  • Remember Your Pets - Pets can be particularly vulnerable to the heat. Make sure they have shade and plenty of cool water to last the day
  • Seek Medical Advice If Necessary - For medical advice telephone Healthdirect Australia on 1800 022 222.
    For immediate medical assistance telephone 000

It is important that we prepare for heatwaves to ensure that we stay safe and well during these times.
