Preparing for a Flood


We have produced some leaflets to help you prepare for flooding and where possible prevent damage:

Please Note: The Lancashire Fire and Emergency Service will not attend a flooding incident unless water is affecting the inside of a property. Their equipment will only function where a minimum water depth of 12" is present. In such an emergency, they can be contacted by either '999' or alternatively during normal hours by telephoning 01772 862545.
