Having just shared advice on preparing for flooding, here’s advice on preparing for hot weather!
Particularly this is for older people, but of course a heatwave can affect anyone.
If you’ve got vulnerable or older people in your street, or friends, or relatives, then perhaps you can share this advice with them.
It’s all part of the Public Health “Heatwave Plan for England” and includes some simple advice guides.
As with many of these publications, if you are a Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator or look after a neighbourhood group, then please let us know if you would like hard copies of these guides. Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can try and arrange to get some printed versions to you.
Residents are also advised to visit the Met Office Weather Ready website here, where there is information about keeping safe and cool during the Summer.
