Stay cool in summer

Council is urging the community to plan ahead to survive the heat this summer. People most vulnerable to heat are the elderly, new babies and those with a medical condition. Avoid dehydration or heatstroke by drinking water throughout the day, keeping your home cool, avoiding outdoors at the hottest part of the day and never leaving pets or people in cars. Don't forget to check on vulnerable neighbours. For more information visit www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/heat.
