Metropolitan Heatwave

Friday 13th December / presented by Taylah Strano

After experiencing the hottest first week of summer in Perth's recorded history, the mercury is set to rise with at least 4 consecutive days of 40+ degrees. The WA Department of Health have issued an official warning and activated a Hazard Plan as the city braces itself for the impacts of the forecast.

Health Incident Controller Karen Lopez joins Taylah to discuss the current situation and give us some tips on how to stay safe during the heat.

Stay safe, stay cool, stay hydrated, and take care of your pets and loved ones.
