Stay safe in summer on the Cooloola Coast

Make sure your increase your fluids over February

Make sure your increase your fluids over February

by the Cooloola Coast Community Local Disaster Management Sub Group

Staying safe and healthy in our hot weather is a priority at this time of the year – not just for humans but for our loved animals as well.

Some of the things to do are:

  • Stay connected – look after yourself, check on sick or frail friends, relatives and neighbours, listen to the news.
  • Stay hydrated and nourished – drink plenty of water, avoid too much alcohol, caffeine and high sugar and eat smaller meals more often.
  • Stay cool – keep your body cool, find a cool shady spot and wear light, loose cotton clothes.
  • Stay out of the sun from 10am to 3pm, slow down and take it easy and avoid hot, closed spaces.
  • And don’t forgot the same goes for your animals – keep them cool and make sure they have plenty of water and PLEASE DON’T LEAVE THEM IN A HOT CAR.


Our next Disaster Management meeting is on March 1 at the Cooloola Cove Community & Vets Hall.  Contact Terry Steele on 0439 862 264 and see us on
