Flood wardens are local volunteers who are supported by the Environment Agency and Calderdale Council. They play a critical role before, during and after flooding events by providing hands-on support to our communities.
Typical duties include:
- Supporting real life flooding events by being the eyes and ears on the ground.
- Communicating with the Environment Agency about flood warning information.
- Offering advice and information to residents and businesses and actively encouraging them to sign up for the Environment Agency’s flood warning service.
- Identifying and supporting vulnerable members of our communities.
- Attending regular meetings with people at risk and those who have a role in assisting our communities.
- Helping to manage resources in partnership with the flood groups.
