Be prepared

If you have an asthma emergency it’s important to know what to do. Check out our Asthma Emergency webpage for life saving Asthma First aid steps. To ensure your asthma is under control, visit your GP for a review and ask for an Asthma Action Plan. In the event of another thunderstorm hitting again, make sure you have taken your preventer and have a reliever and spacer on hand.

We hope all those with asthma in Victoria are safe and with those in hospital a speedy recovery.
