This webinar from Communities Prepared explores the causes of flooding, including the impact of Climate Change, the different types of flooding and how flood risk is communicated by the Environment Agency. It then moves on to the important issue of flood water safety, with information and guidance for flood volunteers on carrying out their roles safely and responsibly, minimising exposure to risks and supporting the community. The webinar will be co-delivered with the Environment Agency’s East Midlands Flood Resilience Team, Derbyshire County Council's Emergency Planning Team and Nottinghamshire County Council's Emergency Planning Team, to provide local knowledge and expertise and promote a joined-up approach to community resilience.
Join this session to build your knowledge on a range of key topics, including:
• Managing flood risk – who’s responsible?
• Weather and flood warning systems
• The potential role of a Warden before, during and after a flood
• Protecting the wellbeing of a Warden and the wider community during a flood whilst managing the daily realities of COVID-19
