The Environment Agency require flood wardens in our area.
Earby Flood Warden – Role and Expectation
You’ll need to provide an address, a phone number that you can be contacted on day and night and an email address.
Signing up will mean regularly checking emails as flood alerts/warnings would initially be communicated via email.
Choosing to become a flood warden will require a level of awareness, observational skills and vigilance in terms of watching and understanding the local weather.
You’d be expected –
- to have regular communication with other wardens and residents
- to be able to collectively and individually make decisions about when to deploy the temporary flood barriers
- to be able to advise people when arranging deployment
- to preach self-preparedness – making people area of where resources can be accessed (flood barriers, pumps etc)
The Environment Agency will provide training which would include a trip over to their Control Centre in Leeds, which they can organise the travel for.
