Beat the Heat
Heatwaves, or long periods of extreme heat, can have serious impacts on your health.
Heatwaves are a major cause of health problems every summer in Australia.

Heat related illness includes dehydration, heat stroke and heat cramps, while extreme heat can also seriously worsen existing health conditions including cardiac disease, mental health and behavioural disorders, asthma and obstructive lung conditions.

Four easy actions everyone can take to protect their health during heatwave / extreme heat events include: 

  • Drink plenty of water and avoid alcoholic, hot or sugary drinks
  • Keep Cool – do less and avoid being outside during the hottest part of the day
  • Check on elderly friends, neighbours and relatives, especially if they live alone
  • Have a Plan for how to stay cool when it heats up
