What is PFR?

Property Flood Resilience, or PFR for short, is an important element of flood risk management. PFR includes a range of measures that can be installed on a building, to reduce the risk of floodwater entering the property. PFR can also be used to make the inside of a property more resilient (also known as recoverability), minimising damage even if water does still enter the building.

PFR aims to help households and businesses reduce the damage caused by flooding, helping them to speed up recovery and reoccupation.
