Flood Action Campaign 2019

A national annual flood awareness campaign to encourage people to know what to do to protect themselves and their property in a flood.

Know what to do in a flood

The Flood Action Campaign 2019 aims to help householders, businesses and communities better understand and manage any flood risks that they face.

The campaign has a clear call to action for those living in a flood-risk area: know what action to take in a flood and get prepared in advance.

To help people know what to do, we have developed a simple Prepare Act Survive plan with an easy to follow set of instructions.

The campaign also warns about the risks of driving through flood water, the number one cause of death during flooding.

The Flood Action Campaign supports the 25 year environment plan, and the National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy for England.
