A talk by various panelists on heatwaves
Our climate is changing - or I should say our climate has changed. Do you think it is getting hotter each summer - how many heatwaves have we already had here in Adelaide despite this not being the hottest month of the year? And these heatwaves seem to be getting hotter, lasting longer, and coming on more frequently nowadays.

Do you listen to the talk about climate change and hear the news about this very topical subject throughout the world? Now is your chance to learn a bit more,

Did you know that heatwaves apparently kill more people than any other natural disaster including floods, cyclones or bushfires? Heatwaves, apart from causing damage to our health, can also cause damage to our ecosystems, agriculture, businesses, infrastructures and whole communities.


A lot is currently been said about global warming and temperatures changing universally and luckily, there are things we can do to prepare for these events.


You will be able to hear well-known media personality, Amanda Blair, take a panel of experts through a hypothetical extended heatwave!

Feeling Hot Hot Hot will be on 6th February 2019, from 6 pm to 8.30 pm at the Adelaide Town Hall, 128 King William Street. This will be a FREE event, however, you will need to register here.

At this talk, you will learn all about the challenges that happen when there is a heatwave in Adelaide. You will also learn some practical things that you can do to control the risk that these heatwaves bring about.


Have you felt the heat this summer already? Our climate is as we all know, changing.

Anthony Penney, Executive Director of Industry and Government Engagement
Business SA Chris Beattie, Chief Officer, South Australian State Emergency Service
Dr Fay Jenkins, Acting Executive Director, Public Health Services, SA Health
