All persons or organisations handling public food are required to notify, preferably on http://www.fbn.sa.gov.au/. If this is not possible, then a paper form is available at the Council office.

Heatwaves can have a detrimental impact on communities. They affect many parts of everyday life such as health and wellbeing, energy and infrastructure, public transport and agriculture. They can also contribute to an increased fire risk and heat stressed trees, which pose a significant threat to public safety.
