The State Emergency Service recommends you take action now to make sure that you and your family stay safe.
Low-intensity Heatwaves are common in South Australia during summer and most people are able to cope well, but the very young, elderly or those with medical conditions should take care.
Severe Heatwaves are less frequent and are especially challenging for babies and young children, the elderly, pregnant women and those who are already unwell, but even healthy people should take care. The SES will issue a separate Watch and Act message for each area in which a Severe Heatwave is forecast.
Extreme Heatwaves are rare, but are dangerous for anyone who does not take precautions to keep cool, even those who are fit and healthy. People who work or exercise outdoors are particularly at risk. The reliability of infrastructure, like power and transport, can also be affected. The SES will issue a separate Emergency Warning message for each area in which an Extreme Heatwave is forecast.
