Flood Volunteer Parts 1 & 2: Dorset Prepared Resilience Event

February 17th, 2021 6:00 PM   through   8:15 PM
This webinar covers the role of a Flood Warden/Community Emergency Volunteer in assisting their community as well as flood risk awareness.

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. This webinar will be co-delivered with the Environment Agency’s Wessex Flood Resilience Team with support from Dorset Prepared.

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

Who is this for?

This webinar is aimed at Flood Warden and Community Emergency Volunteer groups based in Dorset but is also open to:

Community organisations, Town and Parish Councils and those working in community resilience within the area.

This free training webinar is one of the sessions being delivered at the Dorset Prepared Online Resilience Event.
