Reliability in flood incident management planning

The Environment Agency has worked with universities and research consultancies to develop a number of prototype tools that can be used to see how reliable the flood incident management system is.

Detail

The Environment Agency plays a crucial role in flood prevention and, when flooding is unavoidable, helping to limit the damage to homes and businesses. During the major and widespread flooding in summer 2007, the Flood Incident Management (FIM) procedures used by the Environment Agency prevented far worse flooding in many areas which helped saved lives. A research project has now developed a range of analysis tools that will help the Environment Agency – and other organisations involved in flood planning – to identify where FIM could be improved.
