Thinking ahead is the key to staying on top of summer heat as the temperature rises.
Whitehorse Councillor Denise Massoud said extreme hot weather could lead to heat-related illness that could affect anybody, but pregnant women, the elderly, babies, young children and people with a disability were more at risk.
“If you know extreme heat is on the way, make sure you contact friends, family or neighbours who might be especially vulnerable to see if they need help combatting hot weather,” Cr Massoud said.
“There are many things you can do to keep cool and avoid heat stress, sunburn, dehydration and the discomfort that comes with an extremely hot day.”
