Co-ordinated response

During a flood event the efforts of the agencies who have a responsibility to provide a response are co-ordinated by Multi-Agency Flood Plans (MAFPs). There is a multi-agency flood plan for each district in Worcestershire, maintained by the relevant district council.

According to the Environment Agency, over five million people in England live and work in properties at risk of flooding from rivers or the sea, whilst more face flood threats from groundwater, surface water, sewers, and reservoirs.

Gocompare have put together a guide to preparing for a flood and protecting your property – https://www.gocompare.com/home-insurance/limiting-flood-risk-and-damage/

In extreme conditions you won’t be able to stop flood water, and you should always put personal safety above attempts to protect property and possessions. Despite this, there are steps that you can take to keep water out, to buy yourself time to preserve property and possessions, and to limit the damage that flood water does.
