Climate and Health Alliance < 1 mins read

December 13, 2023

 

As New South Wales experiences sweltering heat this week, health professionals are recommending all Australians develop heatwave plans to protect their health.

 

The Climate and Health Alliance is warning Australians to treat heatwaves as seriously as bushfires, floods, and other disasters.

 

Medical experts are available for interview to provide advice on how to develop a heatwave plan, including how to keep cool in this weather.

 

El Niño and climate change together are causing unprecedented hot days across Australia.

 

Extreme heat is Australia’s deadliest type of weather. It is crucial all Australians have a heat plan to protect their health, particularly for elderly Australians and those who work outdoors.

 

For comment, please contact GP Dr Michelle Hamrosi in Batemans Bay or GP Dr Kim Loo in Western Sydney.
