Description

Feeling the heat this summer?

As our climate warms, heatwaves are getting hotter, longer and more frequent.

Heatwaves kill more people than any other natural disaster including floods, cyclones or bushfires. They also cause serious damage to our health, ecosystems, agriculture, businesses, infrastructure and communities.

Fortunately there are things we can do to prepare and respond.

Join well known media identity, Amanda Blair, as she guides a panel of experts through a hypothetical extended heatwave.

You will learn about the challenges posed by heatwaves in southern Adelaide as well as practical actions that can be taken to manage your risks.

Panellists include:

Bob Thiele, Principal, Hackham East Primary

Craig Hobart, Club Development Officer, City of Onkaparinga

Chris Beattie, Chief Officer, SES

Ian Cox, CEO, Hutt Street Centre

Frank Crisci, Emergency Manager, SA Power Networks
