Our libraries, pools and community centres are great places to escape the heat.

We're working with the state government and outreach services to provide care for rough sleepers during the heatwave.

Whenever conditions reach unsafe levels, our outdoor workers will be directed to go indoors. All our services will resume when it’s safe for our staff.

If you have any questions about City of Sydney services, please get in touch.

Following the introduction of level 2 water restrictions, we’re working with Sydney Water to reduce water use while maintaining a liveable city for our residents, workers, visitors and wildlife.

You can also help protect our local wildlife in the heat.
