There are things you can do to prepare your property for flooding, even before a flood is forecast, so that you have less to do if your property is flooded.
Three top safety tips
Surrey Fire and Rescue Service has three top flooding safety tips:
- Stay well away from flood water, and talk to children about how dangerous it can be to play in the water
- Put people before property. Move your family and pets upstairs or to a high place if your home floods
- During a flood don't go out unless you have to. Remain calm and call 999 if you are in danger.
