Extreme heat and heatwaves kills more people than any natural disaster in Australia.

The Department of Health and Human Services has developed the Survive the heat campaign to raise awareness of the risks extreme heat poses to the health of all Victorians.

This Survive the heat information pack has been developed for councils and other government agencies to help you raise awareness through your media and public relations activities related to extreme heat.
