Annual Flood Action Campaign launched:
Please help spread the word!  


From the Environment Agency:

To reduce flood risk and help people prepare for flooding we are hoping to count on your support with our Flood Action Campaign (Prepare. Act. Survive) which runs from October through to March.

This year we’re targeting people who live in areas at high risk of flooding, but have not yet experienced flooding to their home. We want to reach these people in any year, but as you can imagine, coronavirus restrictions will exacerbate the challenge of recovery from flooding this winter so it is more important than ever. We will be encouraging them to use and download our Prepare. Act. Survive flood plan to help reduce these risks. Taking steps to prepare and knowing what to do in a flood can significantly reduce the damages to a home and possessions, reduce risk to life and reduce the likelihood of suffering from mental health impacts in the future.

Share the message

We’ve updated the content in our campaign drop box (please note we’ve changed the link since last year) and are working to add new content over the next few weeks as the months progress.
Please help us by:

  • Posting our flood action campaign content on your social media channels
  • Following @EnvAgency on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and share our content
  • Publishing information on your website
  • Using our campaign email signature
  • Encouraging your colleagues and partners to support the campaign

Flood Action Week is running from 9 to 15 November. This year we want to make sure our messages reach as many people as possible – it’s such an important message and we want people to keep safe especially during such difficult times. Please use the drop box to start using the campaign content.

It would be helpful if you could let us know how and where you’ve used the campaign content. This helps us to understand what’s worked well this year so we can build on it for future campaigns.
