Preparing For A Flood

Homeowners/Flood Action Groups

It’s easy to assume that you will never be affected by flooding, but 5.2 million properties in England and Wales are at risk, and less than 40% of those are aware of their risk and the impact that flooding could have on their lives.

There are a number of ways you can prepare your home and business for a flood event - it doesn’t just include flood mitigation measures.

Read on for steps you can put into action today…

1.      Know your flood risk!
We have a flood risk checker – click here then enter your postcode to analyse the flood risk in your area. 

2.      Register your details to receive flood warnings
The Environment Agency offers a Floodline warning service. Register your details and you can receive flood warnings in your area by phone, email or text. To register for this service, click here.

3.      Make a flood plan
Preparation is key when flooding is imminent. Making a Flood Plan, which all members of your household are aware of, is essential. You could also work together with your local community to make a wider flood plan.

4.      Prepare a flood kit
It’s equally important to prepare a kit of essentials that may help you in a flood, including items such as copies of your home insurance documents, contact details for your local council, a torch with spare batteries, warm waterproof clothing, blankets, a first aid kits and any required supplies of medication, bottles of water and tinned or dried food.
