Plan ahead for sustained heat

Publish date:

It’s going to be hot and dry on Sunday and Monday. While it’s tempting to spend time outdoors, extreme heat can impact your health and under hot conditions fires can run and take hold.

If you’re planning to travel this weekend, remember to check the Fire Danger Ratings before you head out.

It is important that people to know where they can get information and what resources are available to them. This includes the VicEmergency app,, tuning into ABC radio or other emergency broadcasters including commercial and community radio stations, Sky TB or by phoning the VicEmergency Hotline on 1800 226 226 and following VicEmergency on Facebook and Twitter.
