The coming days are looking hot according to the Bureau of Meteorology and City of Ryde encourages everyone in our community to prepare for and stay healthy in the heat.

Anyone can be at risk of heat-related illness, including dehydration, heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. People with existing medical conditions or who take certain medications, seniors, pregnant women, babies and outdoor workers need to take extra care to keep cool and stay hydrated when the temperatures rise.

Visit the NSW Health - Beat the Heat website for information about how to avoid, recognise and treat heat-related illness and how to care for people who are at higher risk. Our City of Ryde website also offers tips to help survive the sun and heat.
