A State hazard plan has been launched to help locals cope with the heatwave sweeping over Perth.
WA’s Department of Health said it had activated the plan based on forecast temperatures for the Perth area.
Chief health officer Dr Andrew Robertson said some people were particularly vulnerable during hot stretches.
“The elderly, babies and those with chronic diseases are more prone to heat stress than most people,” he said.
People who work outside, or are not used to the heat, are often at higher risk of developing heat stroke.
Anyone heading to outdoor events can also be at risk.
Heat stress symptoms may range from mild to severe, and can include rashes, cramps, headaches, nausea and excessive or inadequate sweating. It can also exacerbate existing health conditions.
Anyone who experiences severe symptoms such as a high body temperature, nausea, a rapid heart rate and dry, red, hot skin should seek urgent medical advice.
