Heat related Vulnerability Index

The spatial distribution of heat related vulnerability in the greater Perth metropolitan region suggests that areas of higher risk are concentrated in the inner city, northern and north-eastern suburbs and southern areas along the Swan river valley.  This corresponds to areas with a higher proportion of aged care facilities and households where English is not the primary language.

Emergency ambulance callouts

This map shows the spatial distribution of emergency ambulance calls between 1/1/2006 and 30/6/2011 on extreme heat days defined using a maximum daily temperature of 43°C. The highest numbers of emergency calls (marked as red on the map) were predominantly in southern and south-eastern suburbs.
