Epidemic Thunderstorm Asthma Campaign

The Department of Health (Victoria) is encouraging health and community organisations to promote information about epidemic thunderstorm asthma to their local communities.

You can download the toolkit and access:

  • Newsletter and website content
  • Social media tiles
  • Posters, and
  • Links to translated resources.

VicEmergency will be issuing Epidemic Thunderstorm Asthma Risk Forecasts from October 1. Those at risk should check this daily online or through the app, and book an appointment with a GP to update or create an asthma plan to prepare for the season.
