dealing with high temperatures

We have seen some soaring temperatures in Wagga Wagga over recent weeks, demonstrating the catastrophic effects extreme heat can have on both ourselves and our property.

Here are some key points to remember from NSW Health when dealing with high temperatures:

  • Make sure you regularly check the forecast from the Bureau of Meteorology
  • Get advice from your doctor about your medical conditions and medications that may be affected in extreme heat. Check that your medications are stored at less than 25°C. (medication can become less effective or occasionally toxic if stored at higher temperatures – check with your pharmacist if you are unsure)
  • Know who you are going to call (who may need your help or who may need to help you). Make a list of phone numbers
  • Check  your fridges, freezers, fans and air-conditioners work properly
  • Make sure you have enough food, water and medication for you, your family and pets so you don’t have to go out in the heat or if you become stranded
  • Put together an emergency kit in case you have a power outage. Include a torch, batteries, battery operated radio and first aid kit
  • Consider using cool packs in the fridge or freezer to help cool you down
  • Make sure your home can be properly ventilated without compromising security
  • Create a cool room or area to go to during extreme heat
  • Consider the risk of bush fires. Information about preparing for bush fires and location of fires is available from the NSW Rural Fire Service website www.rfs.nsw.gov.au
  • Have a bush fire survival plan

The four main things to remember to keep you and others safe in extreme heat are: drink plenty of water, keep cool, take care of others, have a plan.

If you are looking for a new home, consider one of our sale properties with a pool or rental properties with a pool to help keep you cool during warmer weather.
