Flooding

Over recent years, we have seen more and more properties affected by flooding during periods of significant rain.

Flooding can be caused by rivers and watercourses overflowing; it can also be caused by drains and culverts being unable to cope with excess surface water on the roads.

Everyone whose home is at risk of flooding should have a plan of what to do if the worst happens. The fire and rescue service can only assist if there is risk to life, or water is affecting electrics, leading to a risk of fire. Please only call 999 if these risks exist. More often than not, we can’t pump water away as this will only then be displaced to other properties.
