Community Flood Plan
Solely relying on local authorities and emergency services during flood conditions is not always advisable – they may be over-stretched or unable to reach you. Having a household plan in place is essential in protecting your own property from flooding but by acting together as a community you can greatly influence the impact of a flood on your entire street or estate or community. No two communities are the same – the attached document is a guide to developing a community flood plan that you can make specific to your community needs.
