Your community’s skills and resources will be invaluable in an emergency. 

The key to acting promptly and efficiently in an emergency is to identify these in advance. Create a list of the people and material resources that could be called on. The best way to find out who can offer manpower is to ask.

Have a look at our Community Emergency Plan Guidance for ideas.

“Works and equipment have made a huge difference in both feeling we are better prepared and able to cope should we flood again.
