Everyone needs to know about the effects of extreme heat. Find out who is most at risk, and learn how to prepare and cope during and after heatwaves. For more information see:
The Telecross REDi service (PDF 86KB) supports registered people by regularly calling them during heatwaves and other extreme weather events.
Who can register?
Registrations are encouraged from people who:
- live alone
- have a disability
- are experiencing mental illness
- are housebound
- recovering from an illness or accident, or have an ongoing illness, such as diabetes or a heart condition.
Making a registration
You can register yourself - or a carer, social worker, doctor, family member or friend can do it for you.
To make a registration phone the Red Cross on 1800 188 071 or 8100 4510 or email SACLientServices@redcross.org.au.
