Improve your resilience in a heatwave

With another month of summer remaining and after experiencing a couple of heatwaves already - the question comes to mind on how we can better manage during a heatwave.

There's no doubt that there'll be some heated discussion (pardon the pun) from the panellists of Resilient South's event, aptly titled Dealing with Heatwaves in Southern Adelaide. You are invited to attend this event at Marion Cultural Centre, on Wednesday, 7 February 2018, from 6.30pm until 9pm. Media presenter Amanda Blair will guide the panel of experts through discussions and advice on surviving a hypothetical extended heatwave in Southern Adelaide.

Arrive at 6:30pm for networking and nibbles - the panel discussion will commence at 7pm and will feature the following panellists: John Nairn (State Director - Bureau of Meteorology), Ian Cox (CEO - Hutt Street Centre), Chris Beattie (Chief Officer - SES), Frank Crisci (Emergency Manager - SA Power Networks), Professor Paddy Phillips (Chief Medical Officer - SA Health), Sandy Pitcher (Chief Executive - DEWNR), Rose Rhodes PSM (Chairperson, SA Divisional Advisory Board - Australian Red Cross), Dr Larissa Nicholls (Research Fellow -RMIT University), Noel Bamford (Assistant Commissioner - SA Police), Paul Davy (Director - Dsquared Consulting), Bob Thiele (Principal - Hackham East Primary School), Craig Hobart (Club Development Officer - City of Onkaparinga) and Tony Lines (General Manager City Services - City of Marion).

It's a great question. Think back a hundred years and there was no airconditioning to dive into for relief. It will be interesting to see what they work out.
