Health Alert West & South Gippsland – extreme heat

Health Alert West & South Gippsland – extreme heat

Friday 25th January 2019 is expected to be an extreme heat day of over 40C.

The forecasted conditions may cause an increase in heat related illnesses in the community.

Extreme heat can affect everyone. Pregnant women, people with a pre-existing medical condition, people aged over 65 and children and babies are most at risk

Heat kills more Australians than any natural disaster.

  • drink more water during the day
  • never leave kids, adults or pets in cars
  • keep cool
  • plan your day to avoid the hottest part of the day
  • check in on others

We pay our respects to the traditional custodians, their elders and ancestors of the lands, which our organisation sits.
We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and welcome you to our service.

Headway Gippsland is committed to treating all people with dignity and respect.
