Flooding emergencies

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.

Flood Action  

Taking steps to prepare and know what to do in a flood can significantly reduce the damages to a home and possessions, reduce risk to life and reduce the likelihood of suffering from mental health impacts in the future.

The Flood Action campaign led by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) continues until the end of March 2022, helping people in flood risk areas to know what to do in a flood.

We also encourage you to download the ‘Prepare. Act. Survive.’ flood plan to help reduce the impact of flooding.

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
