We’re expecting high temperatures across the weekend.
The forecast conditions may cause an increase in heat related illness and exacerbate pre-existing medical conditions in the community.
It’s important to take care of yourself and others as the temperature rises.
There are simple things you can do to stay safe in the heat:
Drink plenty of water and keep a drink bottle on hand.
Spend as much time as possible in cool or air-conditioned buildings (shopping centres, libraries, cinemas or community centres).
Look after those most at risk in the heat – your neighbour living alone, the elderly, the young, people with a medical condition and of course, your pets!
If you or anyone you know feels unwell on a hot day call NURSE-ON-CALL on 1300 60 60 24, or call 000 in an emergency.
