3. Flood Wardens

Some people gain huge rewards in helping others and becoming a flood warden can be an extremely rewarding way to help.

Become a flood warden

A flood warden helps and prepares people in the local community that are at risk of flooding and they play an important role in the development and execution of a community flood plan. They also provide a vital link between a local community and those responsible for responding to a flood.

Role of Flood Warden

If you would like to become a flood warden you need to complete flood warden training. Please contact the Kent Resilience Forum to organise a training session at a time and venue that suits you ( or 01622 212409)

Existing Flood Wardens

Wardens that have completed the training can choose to do our online refresher course which consists of 5 modules that covers: the role of a flood warden, types of flooding, catchment information, weather warnings, and safety awareness. 

Trained wardens can also access a copy of the updated Flood Warden Handbook
