Heatwaves can be dangerous for everyone's health, but some including people over 65, babies and young children, people with certain medical conditions, people who work outside, pregnant women, people who live alone or are socially isolated and people who are homeless are more vulnerable. There are a few simple things you can do to stay safe in a heatwave: It is also important to recognise the signs of heat-related illness. Heat exhaustion is serious heat-related illness and is your body's response to a loss of water and salt in hot weather, usually through excessive sweating or excessive physical activity. Symptoms include pale skin, headache, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, fainting, weakness, irritability, thirst, heavy sweating, muscle cramps and reduced urine output. If you experience these symptoms and they do not improve, seek medical care. Call your doctor or healthdirect on 1800 022 222. If symptoms are worsening and you are concerned about heat stroke, immediately call Triple Zero. Heat stroke is the most severe heat-related illness. In extreme heat, your body's ability to cool itself down can fail, causing your body temperature to increase to a dangerous level. If left untreated, this can result in permanent disability or death, so heat stroke requires immediate medical emergency care. Symptoms include confusion, slurred speech, agitation and altered mental state, profuse sweating or hot, dry skin, muscle twitching or seizures, rapid breathing, a quick strong pulse or very high body temperature. If you are concerned about heat stroke, immediately call Triple Zero. Visit https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/beattheheat for information on how to stay safe during a heatwave. With heat comes the risk of bushfires and poor air quality due to bushfire smoke, that can affect your health. It can also make some people's existing health conditions worse. People in areas impacted by bushfire smoke are encouraged to check the air quality where they live and to follow associated health advice when planning their daily activities. If you live in an area where a bushfire is possible, check and follow any emergency warnings associated with threats from bushfires. NSW Ambulance urges people in fire affected areas to wear any form of eyewear and loose clothing to cover your skin to assist in reducing any incidental injury. If you sustain an injury or illness from heat or fire or if there is an emergency, call Triple Zero. If you see an unattended fire, please call Triple Zero immediately. To prepare your home for dangerous fire weather, clean out your gutters and remove piles of rubbish, weeds and leaf matter. If you have a pool, tank or dam, put a static water supply sign on your property entrance so that firefighters can easily identify water supplies. If you are in a bushfire-affected area, please enact your Bush Fire Survival Plan. With high temperatures expected across the state, police are asking commuters to keep their cool. Traffic delays and the heat generally has the potential to frustrate drivers with slower conditions on the road, so please be patient. Many people will want to head to the beach, a local swimming hole or swim in their backyard pool. Police have urged people to please be careful and keep a watchful eye over children especially when they are near the water - all children need to be supervised. Anyone who sees suspicious or illegal behaviour should to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. The best advice is if you don't need to be out - stay at home. Above all, look after yourself and those around you. If you need assistance call Triple Zero.
