Tip No. 7 - It's tempting to keep the fans and aircon off to save a dollar (we all think it) but your health is more important than the money you might save. Keeping cool during a heatwave is really important. If you don't have air conditioning, consider going to places that do such as the local library, cinema, museums or shopping centre.

tip no.5 - NEVER leave #children or #pets in cars during hot weather, even for a few minutes - and even with the windows open. Not only is it illegal, but the temperature inside cars can rise in minutes to fatal levels (as in, 30-40 degrees ABOVE the outside temperature!). If you see a baby, child or pet locked in a car, call 000.

tip no. 4 - Draw the curtains during the day to keep sun and heat out of your house. Woven screens or bamboo shades to keep the sun off the outside of the windows will also help reduce the heat inside.

Tip No. 4 - Heat stroke - More severe than heat exhaustion, heat stroke can be fatal. If you or someone you're with is experiencing symptoms such as a body temperature above 40.5 degrees Celsius, dizziness, confusion, rapid pulse, fainting or hot red skin with an absence of sweating, seek medical attention immediately. Heat stroke is a medical emergency and you should call 000.

Tip 3 - Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. You might not feel thirsty but your body needs fluids to regulate temperature. Avoid caffeinated drinks and alcohol.

Tip 1 - Heat exhaustion, while not as dangerous as heatstroke is still dangerous. Symptoms can include dizziness, weakness, nausea, headaches and muscle cramps. If it happens to you or someone you're with, get out of the heat, rest and drink fluids. Bring down your body temperature with a cool (not cold) bath or shower, or damp towel. If you don't start feeling better within 30 minutes, seek medical attention. Untreated heat exhaustion can become heat stroke and lead to death.
