Beat the heat

Heat waves can have serious impacts on your health. During the coming heat wave conditions please:

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Keep cool, stay out of the sun and restrict physical activity
  • If you don’t have air conditioning at home, during the hottest part of the day (11am to 5pm) go to an air conditioned facility. The Muswellbrook and Denman library, Marketplace shopping centre and Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre are air conditioned.
  • Take care of the elderly and children, they are more affected by extreme heat conditions.  
  • If you can, spare a thought for our feathered friends by placing a birdbath in your garden and look after your pets and animals, make sure they have access to shade and water. Tree shade can be cooler than some shade structures.
