Annual flood action campaign launched


In England there are over five million properties at risk of flooding, but most people assume it will never happen to them. According to recent polling, only a third of people in areas at risk of flooding believe their home could be at risk.

This year, the Environment Agency's annual Flood Action Campaign, which runs from October to March, is targeting people who live in areas at high risk of flooding but have not yet experienced flooding to their home.

This is a priority for any year, but particularly now as COVID-19 restrictions will exacerbate the challenge of recovery from flooding this winter. The campaign encourages people to prepare for flooding, using and downloading the 'Prepare. Act. Survive.' flood plan to help reduce these risks.
