Be aware of the risks to the community and understand their effect. For each risk, think about what actions are needed to reduce it happening or minimise its impacts. 

Have a look at our Community Emergency Plan Guidance or pop along to one of our Forum events for further advice.

“I am becoming more knowledgeable about the causes and how I can help myself and am also now  part of the Flood group...  Learning more about flooding , future risks and how the agencies are involved are important. Meeting and talking to other agencies  was very useful and essential in forming a plan.
