Extreme Heat Guide – SA Health
South Australia can experience long periods of extreme heat. During our long heatwaves it is easy to become dehydrated and for the body to become overheated. If this happens, heat cramps, heat exhaustion or even heatstroke may develop.
It is very important for everyone to know what the effects of extreme heat are, who is at risk and what to do to prepare for and cope during times of extreme heat.
Medical tests for older drivers to cease
South Australian drivers over 70 years of age will no longer be required to have mandatory drivers licence medical testing each year for their car licence.
Volunteers drivers have an important role in assisting residents of our community with the provision of transport to services and appointments they would not normally be able to access.
