Keeping safe in extreme heat
What to do in extreme heat
Extreme heat can cause heat exhaustion, heatstroke and sometimes even death.
When the weather heats up, please go to the Victorian Government’s Better Health Channel website and follow the tips on how to cope and stay safe in extreme heat.
Regularly drinking water is one of the best things you can do to stay healthly on hot days.
Residents can use the My Mizu App and Website to locate their nearest public drinking fountain. You can also add new drinking fountains to the app as you find them.
