On days of extreme heat, we may declare a Heat Health Alert. When this happens, we convert some of the community facilities we operate into 'cooler places'.
Cooler places are air-conditioned drop-in centres that give renters and residents relief from the hot weather.
Cooler places are particularly for elderly and vulnerable people who may not have other ways to deal with the heat.
For more information on cooler places, contact your local office.
You can see if there are any heat health alerts on our Health website.
Follow these tips on how to stay safe in hot weather.
