Extreme heat, or a heatwave, is a period of unusual and uncomfortable hot weather that could negatively affect human health. Extreme heat can also affect community infrastructure (such as power supply and public transport) and other services.
Extreme heat can affect everyone, but some people are more vulnerable. Groups particularly vulnerable are the elderly, young children, pregnant women, people with a disability, and people are who are frail or sick.
Council encourages you to look after yourself and to check in with your elderly, frail or sick friends, relatives and neighbours during hot weather days.
