It is your responsibility as a homeowner or resident to protect your home from flooding.
We recommend taking precautionary measures and purchasing your own sandbags in case of flooding emergencies.
Where can I get sandbags from?
I can’t get sandbags, what do I do?
If sandbags are not available, you can use:
- rolled-up mats or carpets
- bags of garden compost
- pillow cases filled with soil (don't overfill them)
- timber boards (possibly screwed to door frames and sealed with mastic)
Where can I find information on flood warnings?
You can find up to date information on flood warnings by visiting the flood warnings page on the Government's website.
