Environment Agency - Yorkshire Flood Resilience
Environment Agency Flood Resilience Team
The Yorkshire Property Flood Resilience project should not be confused with the Environment Agency’s Yorkshire Flood Resilience team – although we hope to work closely together to ensure we are providing a more joined-up service for customers.
The Flood Resilience team work in partnership with Local Authorities and other organisations and groups (local and national) to help raise community awareness of flood risk in their area, in order to be better prepared for flooding and recovery from flooding.
We hope to support communities to understand their risk and the actions they can take to improve their own resilience, as defined by the National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy for England, published in 2020: “Flood and coastal resilience involves the capacity of people and places to: plan for, better protect, prepare and be ready to respond, and recover from flooding and coastal change.”
We provide and manage the flood warning service, including maintaining and improving the Flood Warnings and Alert and support planning for incidents by training Flood Warden Duty Officers to be prepared for flooding incidents.
We can support with personal, business and community flood plans, including recruiting and registering Environment Agency Flood Wardens in identified priority locations. If you would like to discuss this or the Flood Warning Service please email: YorkshireFloodResilience@environment-agency.gov.uk
