LISTEN: QAS shares tips for staying safe in hot weather

THE HOT, humid weather is set to continue, with our highest maximum temperature for the week expected today.

Predictions are that Gladstone will reach a top of 35 degrees.

QAS Director, Clinical Quality & Patient Safety, Tony Hucker said it was important to drink plenty of liquids and keep an eye out to those vulnerable to hot weather, including the elderly.

 

 

"What we've got to be careful of is the high risk groups so that's the older people and young kids.

"If you've got an elderly neighbour then go and knock on the door say hey how are you going, do you need a drink and make sure they're ok," he said.

Mr Hucker said it was particularly important for people who work outside to stay hydrated.

We will get a slight relief from the heat later in the week, with maximum temperatures at 29 - 31 degrees.
