Hot weather and extreme heat can affect anyone.

Did you know in Australia, extreme heat events (heatwaves) are responsible for more deaths than all other natural hazards combined? It’s important to be prepared.

Plan ahead to protect yourself and your loved ones from the heat this summer.

We have created two factsheets about preparing for a heatwave and the effect of heatstroke, which are available on the Health Resource Directory website. These factsheets have been translated into Arabic, Simplified Chinese and Vietnamese and are available as audio versions too.
