Coping with extreme heat

Posted 01 January 2016

Extreme heat and heatwaves kill more people than any natural disasters in Australia. The Department of Health and Human Services has developed the 'Survive the heat' campaign to raise awareness of the risks extreme heat poses to the health of all Victorians.

Promotional resources are available to help you communicate about extreme heat to your patients, staff and clients.

These are available for you to download or order at no cost using the order form which is available on the Health website here.
