Preparing a flood plan - Flood defence

Consider having spare boards and sand bags to help block Low level doorways and air bricks etc. Remember to remove these again before using gas appliances.


Gas and Electricity Supply

Do you know where and how to turn these supplies off in your home – Even in the dark?


Would you need to move or secure cars or caravans etc?


If the flooding is severe you may be required to evacuate your home. The District Council may already have made temporary Rest Centres available. Identify beforehand if possible, what you will need to take with you.

Can you make provision for family pets?

If you chose to move out of your home before imminent flooding occurs, consider where best to go out of the floodrisk area and a safe route to that location.

If you stay at home but move upstairs, make sure you have all you need with you.

Don’t wait for the flood to find out if your plan works, try it out now!
