Be Flood Ready

Historically, flooding has had a significant impact on homes, businesses and communities across the UK. As climate change leads to more intense storms and sea level rise, these risks are continuing to grow. Increasing flood resilience at each individual property at risk is crucial to reduce the impact of flooding. BeFloodReady is your local source of information on Property Flood Resilience (PFR) and how you can BeFloodReady
