The Environment Agency and the Kent Resilience Forum held a Flood Warden and Community Volunteer Demonstration Day in East Malling, on Saturday 7 October.
This day aimed to give the people of Kent the opportunity to find ways of reducing the impact of flooding both to their homes and their communities.
The day brought together the network of support organisations that exist to warn and inform people but that also provide training and infrastructure to help build robust local community plans that we action if and when it floods. It was designed around feedback from our volunteer community flood wardens across Kent and aimed to inform and enthuse individuals and community groups about the local roles they can undertake to help be prepared.
Presentations for the day can be found below.
