It’s the summer. So whilst you’re dry let’s think about dealing with flooding!

With the flooding in Germany and recent flash flooding in the UK, the fact that it’s the summer doesn’t mean we can’t be thinking about flooding.

Public Health England and the Environment Agency have prepared a simple guide for everyone which explains how to prepare in advance of a flood; what to do during a flood and how to deal with it afterwards.

Download the .pdf here.

If you think there are residents or neighbours near you who won’t be able to read this electronic version, please let us know at hello@nelwatch.org.uk and we’ll see if one of us or our partners can get printed copies delivered to you.

And if you do nothing else, make sure you’ve signed up for the free flood alert system as explained in the leaflet.
