Preparing for flooding

This information helps you to prepare for the possibility of flooding.

The best defence against flooding is to ensure that you have a plan in case it happens in your area.  There’s plenty of support to help you understand the sort of things you need to think about.

It’s useful to have a personal flood plan.  This covers the things you can do now, and the action to take if you are affected by flooding.

There’s a business flood plan too, which helps companies to prepare the possibility of flooding.

There’s a lot of support and advice available online from central government.

There some really useful information available from Yorkshire Water too - including dealing with a flood, protecting your home and what to do in a flooding incident. 

It’s important to be as prepared as possible.
