Heatwaves are responsible for more deaths than bushfires, floods and storms combined.

This resource is designed to facilitate parents of young children (0-4) become more prepared for heatwaves and extreme heat events with tips for:

- The start of summer

- When a heatwave is forecast

- After a heatwave.

This resource is part of the Heat Smart Western Sydney program which seeks to build Western Sydney’s resilience to heatwaves with a focus on at-risk communities.

WSROC also thanks Resilient Sydney, South Western Sydney Local Health District, and Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District for their ongoing support.
