These simple precautions during the heatwave will help people minimise their risk of heat-related illness.​​

  • Drink plenty of water, and remember to carry some with you when you’re out and about.
  • If you are travelling, make sure you take water to drink in case you break down or are delayed.
  • Avoid alcoholic, hot or sugary drinks.
  • Plan your day around the heat. Stay indoors between 11am and 5pm and minimise physical activity.
  • Keep the sun out of your house by shading windows with an awning, shade-cloth or plants.  Shutting curtains will also help. 

And remember, while rivers look inviting, they are a dangerous place to cool off if you are not a confident swimmer.
