This poster resource has been developed for Council and other public / community venues wanting to promote their facility as a `Cool Spot’ – a location at which the community can go for free during a heatwave / extreme heat event to gain respite from the high temperatures.

Ideally facilities promoting themselves as a `cool spot’ should have:

  • Functioning air conditioning (preferably with back up power)
  • Adequate and freely available drinking water
  • Amenities
  • Nearby, accessible parking facilities
  • Connection to public transport
  • Adequate staffing during a heatwave event
  • Capacity to accommodate a number of people
  • A plan for managing visitor safety should power and water supply be lost
