Flooding Policy and Procedure #3
Difficult to quantify as risk is greater in some areas than others (demographics i.e. flood plain areas could be critical where other areas may be higher up thus likelihood is lesser). The risk to life in the event of a flood could be critical as there is the potential for fatalities – not because of speed of evacuation rather low immune system, frailty, ill-health, sensory impairment etc. Policy reviewed with minimal change, references and links checked and remain current.
