South Australia can experience long periods of extreme heat. During our long heatwaves it is easy to become dehydrated and for the body to become overheated.  If this happens, heat cramps, heat exhaustion or even heatstroke may develop.

It is very important for everyone to know what the effects of extreme heat are, who is at risk and what to do to prepare for and cope during times of extreme heat.

The Government Of South Australian SA Health have produced an Extreme Heat Guide to reference during such conditions.

For further information, including translated fact sheets, on how to stay cool and what to consider visit SA Health.
