Carlisle MP John Stevenson is supporting the launch of the Environment Agency annual winter campaign to inform the public about the risks of flooding and help them take action to prepare.
The campaign runs from November through to March and is focused on helping people know what action to take in a flood, based on the Prepare, Act, Survive flood guide.
Speaking John said, ‘Taking steps to prepare for flooding, signing up for flood alerts, and knowing what to do in the event of a flood can significantly reduce the damages to a home and possessions, reduce the risk to life, and reduce the likelihood of suffering from mental health impacts in the future.”
As part of the campaign, residents who believe they may be at risk are being encouraged to complete a personal flood plan. More details can be found here:
